Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Nine Days in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with writer/director Edson Oda and actors Winston Duke, Zazie Beetz, Bill Skarsgård and Benedict Wong, moderated by executive producer Spike Jonze, is included as part of this screening experience.
Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching TVs with the live Point of View (POV) of people going about their lives, until one subject perishes, leaving a vacancy for a new life on earth. Soon, several candidates — unborn souls — arrive at Will’s to undergo tests determining their fitness, facing oblivion when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Zazie Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past. Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life. Making his feature-film debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning short films and music videos, Japanese-Brazilian director Edson Oda delivers a heartfelt and meditative vision of human souls in limbo, aching to be born against unimaginable odds, yet hindered by forces beyond their will…
