Carolina talks about how the comic novel on which the film script is based inspired her to make a film where she could mix zombie apocalypse elements with fantasy and dreamy worlds to create an atmospheric film.

Endzeit-Ever after: It’s two years since a devastating plague almost obliterated humanity. Frightened 20-something Vivi and fearless zombie killer Eva embark on a desperate journey to what they believe is a safe haven. Created by a cast and crew consisting almost entirely of women, Endzeit – Ever After usurps zombie film conventions and creates a gripping, unpredictable and emotionally powerful fairy-tale in which nature itself is a central character.
