A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film
So you’ve been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.
Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It’s also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn’t about the survival of self, but the survival of another.

Completely lost it

The scripts this season are just amazing. It feels like we’ve shot about three movies already. It’s super intense. They’ve introduced a way to make the zombies scary again,” he says. “They’re terrifying. The new threat is just unreal. The structure of the writing is a bit different. It’s so intense. These are our best scripts so far.
