Vostok Station

Short Film (Full Length) – 2009

PG
Parental Guidance

In this eye-opening short film, Matthew Sunderland (Out of the Blue) plays the sole survivor of an unexplained cataclysmic event. Roaming bloody and dazed amongst a polar landscape — pocked with beached container ships — he experiences a moment of sky-splitting beauty. A rare sci-fi Kiwi short film, Vostok Station was directed by Dylan Pharazyn, and filmed on Mt Ruapehu, with extensive visual effects added in post-production. The film was selected for Sundance (where it was nominated for a ‘New Frontier’ award), plus the Valladolid (Spain) and onedotzero (London) film festivals.

I guess the plan was to try and break the mold a bit with the traditional short film format. I liked the idea of making an art film that utilised a heavy post component. A combination not that common in short films.
– Dylan Pharazyn, in a Campaign Brief interview, 21 January 2010
