“I have spent my life studying these things. So please listen carefully. There is no medicine. There is no vaccine.”

Dr. Ratna Pertiwi (Christine Hakim)

The narrative of The Last of Us series adopts a fragmented rhythm and multiplies the back and forth in time. Episode 2 begins in a restaurant in India, at the very beginning of the epidemic, when the fungus has just started its work. A sequence filmed within the walls of a real restaurant in Calgary’s Crescent Heights neighborhood.

A whole world

The production of The Last of Us has created quite a world in and around Calgary. Over the course of the episodes, Calgary plays the role of Boston or New Delhi, as needed. The restaurant at the beginning of episode 2 having been decorated accordingly in order to create a credible illusion. Indeed, it is in reality a Vietnamese restaurant.

The beginning of the apocalypse

The Last of Us was shot almost exclusively in Calgary. The show’s sizeable budget has given Canada its biggest production since Hollywood moved to its shores to save money. If today, many directors and showrunners continue to produce their films and series in the United States, many choose to film in Canada, where the landscape is very similar to that of the United States. Cities like Calgary always welcome American productions.
