At an airport on the island of Hai-Wan, a young boy witnesses a failed assassination attempt. The assassin, a young woman called Mei, abducts the boy and brings him to her superior, the Metal Dragon. The Metal Dragon is the last of an old order of immortals living secretly in Hai-Wan. He resides on the top floor of the Gold Hotel, from where, via "all-seeing" security surveillance, he presides over the four dragons of the island's districts. These dragons are mortal men. Despite Mei's objections the Metal Dragon imparts the secret of long life to the boy before banishing him onto the streets of Hai-Wan.
The End Of The Earth Is My Home is a modern fantasy inspired by elements from the traditional Asian Stories of the Monkey King and Bram Stoker's Dracula, combined with the writer/director's travel experience.
The film was made over the winter and spring of 2011 / 2012 with a micro-budget raised by crowdfunding. The film uses very few CG effects, most of the effects being achieved in-camera with back-projections, models and other old studio techniques.
The film has an international cast and an original soundtrack by European Sensoria Band, in collaboration with some of the cast.
Directed by Alan Lambert
