AroView: An existential sci-fi drama that imagines human lives being monitored and recorded on old VHS tapes by an enigmatic bureaucrat (Winston Duke). Our-lives-as-movies and our performance within them is at the heart of an extremely intriguing premise where a number of diverse souls vie to prove themselves worthy of what may be another chance of life on earth. It’s a rewarding, meditative American indie made by a Japanese-Brazilian film-maker who invites us to peer at the world through his beguilingly unfamiliar lens.
“Edson Oda’s script is incredible. It asks so many philosophical questions without being preachy or pedantic. It successfully reminds us how precious all of our lives are, which is no small feat.” ~Lorry Kikta, Film Threat
“Nine Days is that rare work of art that invites you to re-consider your entire worldview.” ~Peter Debruge, Variety
