Gloomy Eyes relates the challenging love story between a zombie boy and a human girl in a town flooded by darkness, narrated in different language versions by Colin Farrell (English), Tahar Rahim (French), Max Riemelt (German), Jorge Drexler (Spanish) and Jam Hsiao (Chinese).
Synopsis: When the sun grew tired of humanity, it hid, never to rise again. This darkness awoke the dead from their graves. In the midst of chaos, a zombie kid named Gloomy and a mortal girl, Nena, fall in love and form a deep connection that not even the most powerful man in town can destroy. Together, they might hold the key to make the endless night come to an end.
The project has won awards and screened at several of the most distinguished interactive and film events, such as Sundance 2019 (premiere), South by Southwest 2019, Annecy 2019 and Newlmages Festival 2019.
