The director, Wes Ball, described the world saying "[The massive solar flare that devastated the planet] has transformed the world into a desert with sand dunes that crawl and are swallowing the ruins of a lost world." It's beautiful stuff and Rihal gives it a wonderful feel with his use of color and tone.
