Director Craig Zobel (Compliance) takes this arresting concept and puts a microscope on the trio at its center – raising provocative questions about human relationships, human aspiration and all the things inside us, both beautiful and terrifying, that endure when everything else ends. With a three-person cast and shot in remote New Zealand, the film re-envisions the bleak, dense, technological end-of-the world epic as a lush, lyrical, emotional portrait of three people stripped down to their most fundamental wonders and darkest flaws.
Z FOR ZACHARIAH is inspired by the novel of the same name by Robert C. O’Brien, published posthumously in 1974, and was created by Pall Grimsson and adapted for the screen by Nissar Modi (Breaking At The Edge). The producers are Sophia Lin, Tobey Maguire, Skuli Malmquist, Matthew Plouffe, Sigurjon Siighvatsson and Thor Sigurjonsson. The executive producers are Steve Bannatyne, Claudia Bluemhuber, Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel and Robbie J. Williams. Zobel’s behind-the-scenes team includes cinematographer Tim Orr (Manglehorn, Joe), production designer Matthew Munn (“Girls,”Compliance), costume designer Bob Buck (The Hobbit series), editor Jane Rizzo (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Compliance) and composer Heather McIntosh (Compliance.)
