CATASTROPHE. WHAT COMES AFTER THE END?
»Not the End?! THE ROAD As Postapocalyptical Dystopia«
Lecture by Dr. Jacob Lillemose, Disaster Researcher (Copenhagen)
Recorded on January 9, 2022
On the way through a post-apocalyptic landscape, a father tries to reach the sea together with his son. Based on a novel by Cormac McCarthy, the film depicts a world marked by destruction and hopelessness, even cannibalism. In monochrome, gloomy images, the atmospheric allegory impressively laments the loss of humanity in existential borderline situations.
