Recent winner of the Orson Welles Award for Innovative Filmmaking!
Funded by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $35,000 in the summer of 2012, this indie post-apocalyptic survival horror film takes a different approach to the genre, focusing on character and atmosphere rather than gore and effects to create a startlingly real portrait of our world almost entirely devoid of human life.
Set decades after a bio-terrorist attack unleashes a virus upon the world, transforming much of humanity into vicious creatures and laying waste to civilization, Chrysalis follows Josh and Penelope, two survivors who have banded together in the hope of rescuing others and rebuilding civilization.
