Synopsis by Mark Deming
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.
