The Cast and Director of ‘Nine Days’ Discuss Souls and Choosing An Alternate Reality

BGN interviews the cast and director of the new film Nine Days.

Featured in the interviews are: Winston Duke (Will), Zazie Beetz (Emma), Edson Oda (Writer & Director), Benedict Wong (Kyo), Tony Hale (Alexander), David Rysdahl (Mike), and Arianna Ortiz (Maria).

Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching the live Point of View (POV) on TVs of people going about their lives, until one subject perishes, leaving a vacancy for a new life on earth. Soon, several candidates — unborn souls — arrive at Will’s to undergo tests determining their fitness, facing oblivion when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Zazie Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past. Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life. Making his feature-film debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning short films and music videos, Japanese Brazilian director Edson Oda delivers a heartfelt and meditative vision of human souls in limbo, aching to be born against unimaginable odds, yet hindered by forces beyond their will…
