Independent film director Amir Reichart has created one of this year’s best short films, taking audiences on an epic voyage through earth’s barren wasteland after a global nuclear war.

‘Phoenix 9’ features stunning special effects, apocalyptic landscapes, and follows a group of survivors struggling to make it to a post-war colony. During their 1000 mile struggle they stagger on a secret installation that offers them a new hope for survival.

The work is meticulous and the visuals are on-par with a Roland Emmerich disaster movie. This kind of Hollywood panache is rarely seen in a low budget environment but the painstaking work of the whole team, and the approach from the film’s director makes this a must-watch.
