GENRE: Dystopian sci-fi odyssey
THE PITCH: Fleeing a futuristic Southern landscape ravaged by climate change, Jennifer and Mazy, a pregnant woman and a teenager, head toward a Northern promised land along a patchwork trail known as Snakeskin Road.
GRIM DETAILS: The dead are starting to smell those lying in the waterless reflecting pools, under trees, those in the courtyard mummy-wrapped. No matter where we go in the square, the wind picks up their decay and the syrupy plastic.
HISTORICAL RELEVANCE: The Northern-bound odyssey Jennifer and Mazy endure is an evocative adaptation of 19th-century slave narratives.
