Movie Info

Yasuaki Nakajima writes, directs, edits, and stars in this independent drama that takes place in the wreckage left by the nuclear holocaust of World War III. As one man (Nakajima) makes his way through the blasted landscape searching for food, water, and anything useful, he runs into three other men (Zorikh Lequidre, Oscar Lowe, Moises Morales) with similar goals. But it's when a female survivor is discovered (Jacqueline Bowman) that fighting breaks out among them. Filmed in the less picturesque portions of Brooklyn, NY, After the Apocalypse was shot on 16mm black-and-white film without any spoken dialogue.

Despite its spasms of brutality and a swerve into the macabre, Yasuaki Nakajima's post-apocalypse movie is gentle at heart and terribly sincere.

Butts' moving doc exposes the tragedy of the experiments - not least of all horrific birth defects - as he follows a deformed local woman intent on having a child despite the risks.

This is a film that's not very pleasant to see. But it's a valuable document that you will certainly remember.

Be warned: this can be a very distressing film to watch.

A former Soviet scientist and collaborator in the project shrugs his shoulders: "There is no answer to these questions." Isn't there? Isn't the answer that he and his like should, years ago, have been put in the dock for crimes against humanity?
