Alex, a travel-worn survivor in a desolate post-apocalyptic world, returns to his childhood home to find not only artifacts of his youth, but also the plague-ridden body of his recently deceased father.

Directors notes

As post-apocalyptic and zombie genres have dominated mainstream film and television in recent years, FORMER THINGS takes a different approach by portraying how customs involving death and mourning might realistically transpire amid fantastical circumstances. Drawing on works from Romanian New-Wave directors like Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, & 2 Days) and Corneliu Porumboiu (Police, Adjective), I wanted to take a different approach to the genre. I wanted to take a side step from mostly focusing on shock and gore, but concentrate on the subtle moments that might transcend in dealing with a zombie apocalypse.
