The powerful zombie drama Cargo is finally getting a release in Australia. The film hit Netflix earlier this year and proved – as with the greatest parts of The Walking Dead and films like Maggie – that zombie flicks don’t have to be filled with gore and guts to be great.
Cargo followed a man played by Martin Freeman, as he desperately searches for a safe place for his daughter during a zombie apocalypse.
Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, the feature film was based on the short film of the same name. The short is an extremely powerful and a great example of minimalist filmmaking. A million words are spoken with the slightest action and the choice of music is wonderful. It’s a stunning short that is quite gruesome and very thought-provoking as it thrusts the audience in to a refreshing and hard-hitting scenario.
The Australian DVD and Blu-Ray will come with the following extras:
Cargo: Shaping a Fragile Future
Cargo: Maternal Combat featurette
Interviews with Cast and Crew
Q&A – May 9 2018, Melbourne GPO
Tropfest 2013 Short
Cargo will be released in Australia on 5th September 2018.
