AFTER THE FLOOD follows a young man's desperate search for spiritual redemption on the streets. A provocative character study, the film paints an impressionistic portrait of a soul hopelessly struggling to escape the prison of the modern city.

 

 

 

 

”...an audacious work that show[s] tremendous talents in direction, writing and acting; a film unabashed in embracing certain stylistic and thematic risks...”


“...a mesmerizing performance by actor Shawn Andrews...”

Fiona Ng, indieWIRE.com

 

”With ‘After the Flood,’ Writer/Director Robert Saitzyk creates a haggard, greasy netherworld of nightmare and dream. His film is poetic beauty with each element perfectly in place...And what images! The cinematography by Matt Siegel is extraordinary.

The use of light and shadow here, revolutionary.”

Lodger, filethirteen.com

 

”Saitzyk ...directs with an expressive, driving force.”

Kevin Thomas, LA Times

 

"That first-time director Robert Saitzyk humanizes Simon without sentimentality is a triumph (although a crucial death spins the guy around). The larger-than-life street violence, which we can read about in every daily paper, authenticates the film's melodrama."

Bill Rodriguez, The Providence Phoenix
