Arktisen Upeeta: Last and First Men

A screening at Arktisen Upeeta XXI: THE WORLD IS BURNING film festival in Ilokivi.

"The last and first film by the late, great Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson is a minimalist yet monumental essay on our impending doom — and reinvention. In Last and First Men Tilda Swinton is the literal voice of the future: a disembodied narrator from the hyper-evolved 'eighteenth species' of humanity, calmly but desolately reaching out to us from a world some way past 2,000,000,000 A.D.

Last and First Men is loosely adapted from British author Olaf Stapledon’s influential 1930 novel of the same title, though its expansive, era-leaping narrative has been refashioned as a ravishing 70-minute audiovisual essay on human mortality, extinction and legacy." (Variety)
