Storyline

1851: Elias Howe receives patent for an "Automatic, Continuous Clothing Closure" (zipper) 1889: The Eiffel Tower is completed for the Parisian World Fair of the same year BUT, one detail that the history books never mention is that the World Ended that same year in 1889, in Paris. Just then, Lucifer & the Archangel Michael hatched a successful plan, followed it through, overcoming perilous obstacles, and got the job done. For the first time, our film documents and re-creates the End of the World as it really occurred. Written by Carl Laudan

An amazing production
8 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing feat the director has accomplished. It is lush, evocative and rich. How this was done on a low budget in incomprehensible. It looks like a major production, is shot gorgeously and is compelling and mysterious. Anyone who thinks a low budget makes a visually stunning project impossible will learn a lesson from this work. The huge vision of this short belies its simple story - how it gets there is what makes this ambitious short so interesting. The characters are unusual and unpredictable, and their environment is so full of literate ideas. It is a context that raises its subject to an original idea.
