Chino Moya’s debut feature Undergods places viewers in a foreign futuristic world, though sadly one that feels more familiar every day. The film’s narrators manoeuvre through a deserted, crumbling, greyish-blue city, gathering bodies as they go and sharing nightmarish stories of a long-abandoned past.
What follows is a series of narratives, overlapping and weaving through time and space with remarkable grace and ease. The threads come together elegantly as stories layer upon each other and crescendo towards a powerful, satisfying conclusion.
