Production Company: imitating the dog & Pete Brooks
Framed as a film that is being directed by a famous Chinese film director and crew, The Zero Hour fuses live action with pre-recorded film, animation, and computer generated imagery to create a world where human relationships are located at the heart of historical events.
This is Berlin in the final hours of World War Two, where we witness three different versions of events, all presenting a slightly different outcome, from British, German and Russian perspectives.
Disturbing and romantic in turn, The Zero Hour is shot through with the obsessions (sex, babies, death, WW2 and time travel) that are the hallmarks of imitating the dog‘s narrative inventions to date.
