Peter Debruge for Variety

About the film:

Nine Days premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival where Edson Oda received the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award. The film was also nominated for Best First Feature at the 2021 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Will spends his days in a remote outpost watching the televised 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 if they are deemed unsuitable.

About the filmmaker:

Japanese-Brazilian filmmaker Edson Oda is making his feature debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning projects, including his Latin Grammy Award-nominated music video of a choreographed human clock and his Quentin Tarantino Emerging Artist Contest winner The Writer

Based in Los Angeles, Oda is a Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab alumnus and a Sundance Institute Momentum Fellow. He had a thriving career in advertising before giving it up to craft a surreal exploration of what it means to be alive. Learn more here.
