Last and First Men

70 minutes 2020 6.7

Two billion years ahead of us, a future race of humans finds itself on the verge of extinction. Almost all that is left in the world are lone and surreal monuments, beaming their message into the wilderness. There are no people in the film, no actors or actresses, only Tilda Swinton’s voiceover that explains what has happened to the world. 

Directed by Johann Johannsson, the Icelandic composer who received Academy Award nominations for The Theory of Everything and Sicario, Last and First Men is a hypnotic total work of art that turns cinema into a pure synthesis of sounds and images.
