Storyline

A marooned area turns into a parallel universe filled with obsession, violence, and anarchy. This is where Saila lives in an abandoned high-rise block. Time and space become blurred while voices over the radio report on disasters and catastrophes . A surreal underground epos with a haunting soundtrack and one of film history's bloodiest love scenes. Julia Ostertag's full-length feature film debut was shot in guerilla-style in East Berlin's industrial wasteland. Written by Anonymous

Anarchy and the Apocalypse
15 March 2009 | by andreastereoSee all my reviews

What does Armageddon mean to an anarchist ? The average person would regress to animal survival instincts, but the subjects of Saila are already there, and accept nuclear holocaust as an inevitable turn of events. A fascinating glimpse into the violent subculture of those who live off the grid, disturbingly framed as a microcosm for society at large. The doomsday vision is unique in it's presentation from the perspective of the elements of society most apathetic and least affected by it, from a generation in which nihilism already pervades. Saila seems to suggest a deeper, darker truth: apocalypse may already be upon us.
