Undergods is set in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic world, K and Z roam the streets on the lookout for corpses and something even more valuable – fresh meat. What follows is a series of narratives, overlapping and weaving through time and space.
The threads come together elegantly as stories layer upon each other towards a powerful conclusion.
Here’s the trailer –
The official Undergods synopsis reads:
“An otherworldly journey through a Europe in decline, Chino Moya’s feature directorial debut Undergods is a collection of darkly humorous fantasy tales about a series of men whose worlds fall apart through a visit from an unexpected stranger. Set to an original, synth score featuring ‘80s electronica, Undergods journeys through disparate eras and realities fusing failed 20th Century utopias and 21st Century Ikea nightmares.”
Undergods was also played at the Glasgow Film Festival in February and went on to receive two BIFA (British Independent Film Award) nominations.
The film is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Chino Moya, making his feature directorial debut after a few short films and other creative work.
The project was made with the support of the BFI, (using funds from the National Lottery), the Wallonia Brussels Fund for Audiovisual and Cinema, the Estonian Cultural Fund, the Estonian Film Institute, Sweden’s Film I Vast.
Moya’s Undergods opens in select theaters and on VOD starting May 17th.
