Commercials and music video director Chino Moya makes his feature debut with Undergods, a dystopian fantasy which will have its world premiere at the Fantasia Festival on 20 August.
This is one mind-boggler of a trailer, but it looks (and sounds) absolutely stunning. I’m getting hints of Terry Gilliam and Ben Wheatley from this. Check out the trailer and the poster below…
An otherworldly journey through a Europe in decline, Chino Moya’s debut Undergods is a collection of darkly humorous fantasy tales about a series of men whose worlds fall apart through a visit from an unexpected stranger.
Set to an original, synth score featuring ‘80s electronica, UNDERGODS journeys through disparate eras and realities fusing failed 20th Century utopias and 21st Century Ikea nightmares. An unsettlingly entertaining, singular visual feast, Undergods features a stand out, pan European cast that includes Kate Dickie (The Witch), Ned Dennehy (Mandy), Geza Rohrig (Son Of Saul), Adrian Rawlins (Chernoybl), and an especially crazed Jan Bijvoet (Borgman).
Made with the support of the BFI, (using funds from the National Lottery), the Wallonia Brussels Fund for Audiovisual and Cinema, the Estonian Cultural Fund, the Estonian Film Institute and Sweden’s Film I Vast, Undergods is produced by the UK’s Z56FILM in co-production with Velvet Films (Belgium), Homeless Bob Production (Estonia), Media Plus (Serbia), Filmgate Films (Sweden), and Ridley Scott Creative Group’s Black Dog Films and RSA Films.
