Here is an excerpt from the score for the film:
Music composed, orchestrated and produced by Edouard Brenneisen © Edouard Brenneisen 2011
A woman in the aftermath of a terrible global event is left alone to ponder the past.
Population: 2 takes place in an unspecifed time in which something has gone wrong; something that has left the world devoid of humanity. Whatever occurred, only one survivor remains, a female named Lilith.
Every day, Lilith wanders the remains of civilization, scavenging what she can from the deserted refuse of what was once a bustling city. Her red wagon drags along behind her, its rusty wheels squeaking out a constant and lonely rhythm in the dead city. Once she had planned to fill it with a child’s toys. Now, instead, she fills it with canned goods, bottled water, and whatever else she can find to help her live another day. These materials she brings back to her underground home, a nest she’s carved out for herself underneath the deserted city streets.
She also brings back a coffin. Then she eats dinner alongside whatever is inside.
The film prompts one to explore the themes of loss and loneliness, as well as to show the consequences of the choices we make and the choices we are afraid to make. It warns about the dangers of taking things for granted, most especially the relationships we forge with the people willing to take life’s journey with us.

I keep thinking about the number of people in real life in Portland who live now (pre-apocalyptic) in similar survival mode as the character in your story. What a true story you tell.”
“In the days since the screening, I have really had a hard time not thinking of all the concepts in this artful movie… Anyone who sees it will defnitely blown away by the photography and the music.”
“I loved the flm. It is really provocative and evocative. As 21st Century people rush to hasten the end of life as we know it by worshipping an imaginary past and dreaming that it can be replicated ad nauseum, it seems to me that there is both room for and a need for some rational artists to present a
