Last Light Short Film

Why Watch? A massive accident, contamination and the usual tropes are all here in this short from Stephen Beres, but it also pulls off a fresh take on the post-mini-apocalypse genre with a bit of sincerity and clarity.

Built on a foundation of beautifully framed shots and smart editing, Last Light focuses on the sole inhabitant of a walled off safety zone — what he eats, what he thinks and how he keeps his mind stable enough to survive. Fortunately Beres found an actor in Jeremy Connors who was up to the simmering scrutiny of that role.

Instead of a wholesale reinvention of the nuclear wheel, it’s an excellent execution of a lonely idea. An exploration of what keeps us going, what makes us smile in the darkness and what keeps us up at night.
