Above and Below

American outsiders in a magnificent, cinematic trip to a post-apocalyptic USA.

Two astronauts play table tennis in the red desert sand. But what might resemble the first human colony on Mars is in fact a space station in Utah, where a small group has isolated itself in a shared belief in the coming apocalypse. Under Las Vegas, a parallel society has come into existence in the tunnels, and in the Californian wilderness, a lonely man sends signals to God through a drum solo. American outsiders who have created a new world in the ruins of an invisible collapse. The debut director Nicolas Steiner has created a sense-expanding, visual film about people who have turned their backs on society and made themselves comfortable in its dilapidated fringes. Below and above ground, and with the eyes fixed on the stars. America (and the rest of the world) is indeed in a deep crisis, but the pioneering spirit lives on in a post-apocalyptic reality. 'Above and Below' is a magnificent, cinematic trip to a future that is already here. But where it is still the human being that is at the centre of all things.
