Year: 2012

It’s 2016, and the world is a desiccated wasteland following a massive spike in global warming. Those who survive are either resourceful or violent, and sometimes both. This tightly crafted post-apocalyptic survival tale marks Tim Fehlbaum’s prize-winning directing debut.


Synopsis

Tim Fehlbaum marks his directing debut with this tightly crafted post-apocalyptic survival tale that makes up in conviction what it lacks in originality. The story of a quartet battling marauders while searching for water on a parched Earth of the near-future makes nods to Planet of the Apes, Mad Max, Deliverance and scores of other pics. It’s 2016, and the world is a desiccated wasteland following a massive spike in global warming. Those who survive are either resourceful or violent, and sometimes both. Marie (Hannah Herzsprung), her younger sis Leonie (Lisa Vicari) and b.f. Phillip (Lars Eidinger) are in a car heading to the mountains in hopes of finding water. At a ruined gas station, they have a tense standoff with the wiry Tom (Stipe Erceg) before settling into a wary peace when they realize he’s clever and practical.

About the director

Tim Fehlbaum (b. 1982, Basel) studied cinema and television at the HFF academy in Munich. While at school he shot several shorts, including Für Julian, which took the 2004 Shocking Shorts Award. Beyond that he has also directed music videos, cooperating with the Munich band Blumentopf, among others. As a cameraman he worked on the documentaries Kinder der Schlafviertel (2005) and My American Cousin (2008). In the low-budget zombie short Am Flaucher he sought to create a particular style and atmosphere, one he would later use in Hell. That short exercise caught the attention of producer Thomas Wöbke, and together they and former fellow student Oliver Kahl wrote the script for Fehlbaum’s feature debut.
