The Duty of Living
is a beautifully shot film (using, surprise, surprise, the Red One) that uses the standard zombie set-up to express an interesting allegory about civil vs. family duties. Of course, the two aren't ever mutually exclusive - particularly where the apocalypse is concerned - but the idea creates instant drama, which is exactly what a short film needs. Some of the acting is a little theatrical maybe, but the last glimpse of a chained up zombie is enough to pique our interest.
The tragic tale of a family's quest for survival during a zombie apocalypse.
