It is not often that an award-winning author and screenwriter decides to direct a TV series adapted from his own beloved novel, but that’s exactly what Niccolò Ammaniti has done with Anna (set to air on AMC +). Based on his book from 2015, the six-episode series takes one science-fiction dystopia-a world where one mysterious disease has killed all the adults – and turns it into a horrible, confusing and absolute fascinating fable, as you can see in this trailer, debuts exclusively on io9.
Suffice it to say, the kids are extreme does not okay, starting with Anna (Giulia Dragotto), if mother leaves her with a survival guide. But it’s not at all a book equipped to help Anna through the surreal world she must search to find her kidnapped brother. This is no just post-apocalyptic TV series, according to Annas creator, author and director. “Anna is both a psychedelic trip, a dark tale and the strong growing story of a girl, where childhood is no longer perceived as a life station, but rather as the permanent condition of all human existence, ”explained Ammaniti. “Anna things also happen without magnificent design; paradigm without judgment; and it is also an eerie paradox that questions our very relationship to nature, to ourselves, to our demons – only to remind us that all truth is mystery to itself, and that everything that deserves to be saved is the loving embrace of two children. “
Ammaniti focused especially on nature, as you can see how much it has reclaimed the world of human civilization in the trailer. “Depicting a world without adults was a challenge for all departments,” Ammaniti said. “Nature, liberated from adults, had to come out strong as the true star of the series. The remnants of human civilization, mercifully covered with green areas, regain its natural space. Thanks to everyone’s cooperation, I think a series has been born that feels sunny and light – but which can get dark and scary at any time without warning. “
The trailer certainly leans more into the dark and scary – little kids coming out of viscous blue paint, others wearing animal masks in poorly lit rooms – but again, that’s fascinating. That’s definitely an equally good argument for signing up for AMC +, as I’ve seen. Cast Dragotto as the teenage title character and 9-year-old Alessandro Pecorella as her kidnapped brother Astor, who both make their TV debut, Anna premieres on AMC + on November 18 and will stream episodes weekly.
