I saw this film at the Worldfest International Film Festival in Houston, TX where it won a Platinum Remi for Best Sci-Fi Feature! The filmmakers, Gil Luna and Jonathan Stark, were present and shared their story about the struggles and triumphs in making this film. If you support independent film and post-apocalyptic awesomeness, then you need to BUY this film. The story will make you cry, laugh and really appreciate your life.
The DP also did excellent work. There's one shot where the lead actress is looking at her reflection on some broken glass. I remember that one specifically because it was one of my favorite shots from the film. I even remember talking about it with my friends at the Houston screening.
And the lead actress .OMG! I was cracking up when she was talking to herself. She's very versatile. I can't wait to see her in future films.
Way to go Population 2 team!
