Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching the live Point of View (POV) on TV of people going about their lives, until one subject perishes, leaving a vacancy for a new life on earth.

WINNER: Sundance 2020, Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award: U.S. Dramatic

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...

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.

'One of the most moving films of the twenty-first century." - ianthomasmalone.com

"A Knock-out piece of filmmaking." Roger Ebert

'A rich, speculative drama on life and destiny." The Boston Globe

“At the risk of overselling Edson Oda’s ultra-original, meaning-of-life directorial debut, there’s a big difference between “Nine Days” and pretty much every other film ever made. “Nine Days” invites you to re-consider your entire worldview.” –  Variety

“One of the more striking directorial debuts of recent years...Stunningly crafted, a special, one-of-a-kind film that announces a significant talent." ”– The Hollywood Reporter

Winston Duke is incredible...The breakout “Black Panther” star showed his range in “Us” almost a year ago, but what he accomplishes here is on a completely different level.”–The Playlist

"Wholly original. A rich, speculative drama on life and destiny." The Boston Globe

"A standout directorial debut by Edson Oda."  Screendaily

"Nine Days invites you to re-consider your entire worldview." Variety
