“Ever Since The World Ended” is a character-driven “social science fiction” film about life after the end of the world. Twelve years after a devastating plague emptied the world of people, two San Francisco filmmakers traverse the nearly deserted City with a camera and a microphone. On a journey that will carry them far beyond the city limits and into the wilderness beyond, they begin to uncover the secrets of their new world. In a series of encounters and interviews with a handful of fellow survivors, they explore the harsh realities of life after civilization, revealing the day-to-day struggles for survival, the shifting moral imperatives, and the deep ideological rifts in a fledgling community trying to chart a way forward.

At once epic and intensely personal, the film explores the strange and often humorous ways that people cope with devastating loss, the impatience of the younger generation with their elders’ apparently baffling customs, and the new sexual politics that results from a catastrophic loss of population. Through the words of a ragtag collection of survivors, “Ever Since The World Ended” is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic look at society, humankind’s hopes for the future, the legacy of history, and the tough choices facing everyday people struggling to build a community on a large and lonely planet.
