For this event, catch the post-apocalyptic thriller The Survivalist. Yes, we know – post-apocalyptic films are two-a-penny these days, but few have the lean intelligence and skill of The Survivalist. In this work, a forest-dweller is forced to reckon with two women who require his assistance to survive. With understated stylistic excellence and a nuanced approach, this is a film to be reckoned with.
