It was all the way back in 2006 that Brazilian director Carlos Gananian wowed us with his atmospheric vampire short Akai
. A film that demonstrated Gananian's uncommon ability to carry a story almost entirely without dialogue, Akai
marked Gananian as a director to keep a very close eye on.
It's been a long wait.
Brazil is not a nation known for supporting genre film and while figures such as Coffin Joe have made a mark around the globe it is often a struggle for young filmmakers, no matter how gifted, to make any sort of progress there whatsoever. Like Dennison Ramalho, who waited through a seven year gap between Love For Mother Only
and his stunning latest effort Ninjas
and is still trying to mount his debut feature, there has been a lengthy gap between projects for Gananian but he is now in post on a new short film titled AMFM
Gananian describes the film as a scifi horror, in the vein of Creepy
with a dose of dark humor running through a story that touches on alien abductions. And while there is no trailer yet you can check out some concept art and behind the scenes stills in the gallery below.
