In a surreal and phantasmagorical world, a future race of humans finds themselves on the verge of extinction. Brutalist stone monuments of the communist era – once intended as symbols of Unity and Brotherhood – remain as lone, abandoned beacons beaming their message into the wilderness. While the story of crumbling future civilisations is told, the spectral presence of an entity attempting to communicate with us emerges. Based on a speculative science fiction story by Olaf Stapledon with music composed by Jóhann Jóhannson (The Theory of Everything & Arrival), LAST AND FIRST MEN represents Jóhann Jóhannson's final and most personal work – an allegory of remembrance, ideals and the death of utopia.
