Brad Benischek’s Nocturnal Emissions is inspired by memories of playing the post apocalyptic role-playing game Gamma World as a teenager. The show’s futuristic narrative moves beyond the game and its rules and into a strange unstable universe. Here, childhood, adolescent and adult fears and desires are superimposed on each other as a family navigates a chaotic nocturnal landscape full of dangerous encounters and distant unknown goals.
