Last and First Men

Body

Beautifully filmed in monochrome 16mm amongst the futuristic, decaying backdrop of the Spomenik, a series of now-crumbling, concrete WWII monuments across the former Yugoslavia, Last and First Men is a stunning audio-visual, science-fiction essay on human mortality and the end of all things from the late, great Jóhann Jóhannsson.

Based on the eponymous 1930 Olaf Stapledon novel, and blurring the boundary between documentary and fiction, Tilda Swinton (who better) voices a human from its 18th distinct evolution from some two billion years in the future (the Last Men), reaching back to the First Men (us) for help, as the end of time approaches.
