"A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing: just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other."

Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortensen, Guy Pearce, Robert Duvall and Garret Dillahunt star.

Frieze Film 2008: Road Movie is a four-part film created by artists and film-makers that was produced on YouTube. An experiment in film-making, the final result was a film made in an entirely new way: the first multi-authored fractal film assembled by the artists and curator out of the sum of the submitted parts.

Inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s 2006 novel The Road, the project used the road as a leitmotif for a non-linear journey through the post-apocalyptic landscape.  
 

The final product debuted on Channel 4 on 13th October and is the rather apocalyptic "state of the world" vid set to Fuck Buttons' Ribs Out, which you can see at the top here. The short above - Memories Of Falling Ash - is a superbly neat little submission for the project by DeadShed Productions aka Nick Thomson. Dark in more ways than one, this interesting take on the road movie genre is lavishly atmospheric and promising work indeed.
