The Final Land


rivets on the poster - review

Our first american (and very positive) review has been published, by Mark Cole from Pennsylvania. An excerpt:

"The problem with any two-actor film is that the leads have to be able to carry the weight of the whole production on their shoulders — and Das letzte Land asks a lot of its two stars, who have to be raw and gritty; sweaty, filthy and unshaven; caught up in violent emotions and lost in moments of quiet wonder.  Torben Föllmer and Milan Pesl are both clearly up to the task and bring a lot of life to two starkly defined characters we learn very little about.


And this reflects the admirable subtlety of Marcel’s writing:  he avoids the screenwriting 101 error so many young filmmakers make when they force miles of overly complicated backstory on us.  Instead, so much of this film is suggested and hinted at — or left for the audience to ponder.  I particularly liked the way he defines his characters with two words, which in German carry a lot of deep, emotional meaning, 'Heimat' and 'Freiheit.'"

Our english (and updated) film poster - printed and shipped to London in the meantime.

Currently all the spaceship construction footage is being watched and cut. This is gonna be nice!


neisse programme published

The Neisse Film Festival has published its programme. Our film (with the Polish title "Ostatnia ziemia" or the Czech "Poslední zem?"!) will be shown in the section "Deutsches Fenster" - on May 8 in Görlitz and on May 11 in Liberec (Czech Republic).

Look closely. Our sound engineer Jan and director Marcel hide back there in the green...

Such shots from the time our film was made are currently being put together for a nice making-of-documentary. This documentary will then become the main bonus feature on the DVD or Bluray...

We are very happy to announce that we have received a confirmation from this year's Neisse Film Festival! So before London, our film will be shown in the border triangle of Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. Where and when exactly, we'll give it away soon!

Thanks to the Sci-Fi-London!


sci-fi-london film festival - poster

Nice poster of the Sci-Fi London Film Festival! We are very happy that we will show our film in such a friendly setting and in such a wonderful city. We don't know yet when and in which of the cinemas our film will be shown, but as soon as we have new information, we'll announce it here.


three successful special screenings in siegen

Everything went off successfully. Three times our film was shown in Dahlbruch, three times we were invited to exhibit props, costumes, models, photos and drawings in the foyer, three times most of the 714 spectators stayed for the Q&A round - and none of the Q&A rounds were similar to the others, each time different topics came on the table. So three times we could be very satisfied and we still are.
The one-on-one conversations, which came up again and again, were also very nice. There were new points of view, new ideas about the film, there were discussions about details as well as about the big picture, the whole. The story, the world, the meanings, the frankness and empty spaces in the narrative, the whole design, the way it was made, the methods, the production - in the end, everything was a topic at some point. After all, there's a question that's been asked every single time: Whether there will be a part II... :-)

Now we have to continue with the making-of and make various preparations for the upcoming festival in London...
