“In the film, Coco (Hendler) has just moved to a new apartment with his wife Pipi (Stuart), who’s seven months pregnant. At first, they don’t seem to notice the growing chaos around them, but when authorities quarantine their building after a deadly pandemic breaks out, Coco joins forces with his off-kilter but well-prepared and stocked next-door neighbor Horacio to defend his refrigerator and keep Pipi safe.
Meanwhile, outside the building, Buenos Aires–and the world as the apartment denizens know it, is disappearing. The world is ending; got ammo?”
Phase 7 (Fase 7) premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March, and also screened at the Boston Underground Film Festival, the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival, the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal (the largest genre festival in North America) and the Danger After Dark Festival in Philadelphia.
