Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles
Completed and released in 2021, Apocalypse, The Doll Chronicles is the film that never was. The footage was originally shot in 2015-2016 and it was meant as an overly ambitious entry into The Doll Chronicles series, but sadly most of the footage was lost to dead hard drives. From footage found and restored in old drives found years later, Franco Esteve’s great Doll Chronicles frustration, Apocalypse was rebuilt, refocused, and finished as a thought, a conceptual music driven, experimental film more in line with The Doll Chronicles concept, and yet, maintaining some of the original dialog and ideas.
The film follows Doll, a woman on the edge of reality, as she explores what looks like a desolate, post-apocalyptic landscape. Something or someone appears to be chasing her, and as we follow her travels the darkness becomes clearer and we learn what it’s all about. The final film can be interpreted a number of ways, but the social awareness focus is still on trauma, particularly childhood trauma and abuse.
The film features new actors Charlotte March, Danny Brooks, and Llucia Pizà, and sees the return of Consequence actors, Marisa Reyes Durán and Bernat Pizà Galmes, with another cameo by executive producer, Emma Saura Woods in a party scene with other extras.

The film is currently in the film festival circuit, having received Best Experimental Film at EdiPlay International Film Festival in France, Best Short Film at Medusa Film Festival, and other accolades for both the film and the music.
