Here is an excerpt from the score for the film:
Music composed, orchestrated and produced by Edouard Brenneisen © Edouard Brenneisen 2011
Now comes Lilith in writer/director Gil Luna’s Population 2. She navigates the loneliness of a world devoid of humanity; the squeaky wheels of a child’s wagon always in tow is the only sound she hears.
The film has been working the festival circuit since 2011, pulling in awards (Indie Fest, Award of Merit; Accolade Competition, Award of Excellence; Houston World Fest, REMI Award, etc.) and excellent reviews. It is a genre film in the truest sense and that means that its audience is both loyal and narrowcast … sci-fi fans. The DVD release gives it a chance for a wider audience to explore and enjoy.
Lilith, alone in the world — at least her little corner of it — finds herself wandering a hellish landscape by day, scavenging for food and returning to her hidey-hole at night; her self-imposed sanctuary where she can dream of other things … the past.
Luna takes us into her world — and her past — through her daily rituals and jumps us back to past events little by little. In the process the puzzle is slowly pieced together.
This woman has long since reached the end of the rope, tied a knot and is now just hanging on. But for her there is hope, oddly enough, when all hope seems to be gone. Maybe it is hell that she is experiencing — the same thing over and over again. Maybe it is her penance for things in her past. In any case, Population 2 is an interesting take on the well-worked theme of a post-apocalyptic world and what it takes to get through one day to the next.
