Today, Sony Classics will release the film, Nine Days
, in theaters in New York and Los Angeles, following with a nationwide release on Friday, August 6th. The film, which was written and directed by Edson Oda, is a unique story that takes place in an outpost in an unspecified location. Will (Winston Duke)’s job is to watch the live points of views of people down on earth on a group of old televisions. When someone dies and a vacancy opens, it’s up to Will, with the guidance of Kyo, played by Benedict Wong, to test and choose an unborn soul to take that person’s place on earth.
Oda and Wong recently talked to Jamie Ruby in an exclusive interview about working on the film, where the concept came from, how it had a profound effect on viewers, and more.
