Nine Days

... Invites you to reconsider your entire worldview. ” Variety

A knockout feature directorial debut from Edson Oda, NINE DAYS is an ethereal and evocative film about the meaning of life – elevated by a phenomenal performance from Winston Duke.

Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching the live Point of View (POV) on TV’s 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 when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Zazie Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past.
Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life.
