Cassandra - Polish Post Apocalyptic Film

Poland seems to be great place for Post Apocalyptic stuff - after all they got the brunt of 2 fronts in World War 2, not too much several decades of communism. Check out this up and coming post apocalyptic film called Cassandra from the country - this was source via Quiet Earth so check out that site for the latest updates.

A breakdown of about the upcoming film:

Cassandra is a stark and brooding film, with constant unexpected twists adapted from Marek Baraniecki's cult science-fiction short story GÅ‚owa Kasandry (The Head of Cassandra). It?s set in a post-apocalyptic world, laid waste by a global conflict. One of the saved, Theodore Hornic, helps the few survivors by disarming the remaining missiles which lurk menacingly in underground silos. The abandoned missiles may spring to life at a moment?s notice, raining down death and destruction on the last remnants of humankind. The legend of the Missile of Ultimate Retribution is the only thing that now gives Hornic?s life meaning. That missile is the mythical Cassandra; the most powerful weapon ever invented. When Hornic finds Cassandra, reality will turn out to be even more horrifying than anything he could have imagined in his worst nightmares.
