“My hope is that the viewer will go into Afterschool with an open mind and leave with a series of questions about this world and about this boy.”
Antonio Campos, Director
Afterschool centres on the experience of Robert, a young American student at an elite East Coast preparatory school who accidentally captures on camera the tragic deaths of two female classmates. Their lives become memorialised as part of an audio-visual assignment intended to facilitate the campus-wide healing process, with the technophile Robert eventually overseeing the project. But the memorial assignment only serves to heighten the atmosphere of paranoia and unease among both students and teachers…
Ezra Miller (Californication) is the teenage lead in award-winning young director Antonio Campos’ intelligent, inventive study in alienation. In this, his first major feature, Campos sets age-old adolescent anxieties within a disorientating contemporary culture of omnipresent voyeurism. This acclaimed, powerful and provocative film is available here for the first time.
