In this paranoid, baroque fantasy, set in a bleak future in which geneticists have eradicated unhappiness, a huge black market in emotional and physical pain-inducing drugs is thriving.
Jack (Peter Scanavino) is a dealer who offers his customers the welcome phenomenon of pain. When Jack receives a mysterious videotape of his dead father, he sets out to unmask the conspiracy behind the origins of this dystopian world.
A visually stunning art-house BLADE RUNNER for a generation in thrall to sex, violence, conspiracy, and urban tribalism, the film fits its ‘retro-futuristic steampunk thriller’ tag-line perfectly.
Its many plot twists innovatively cross the boundaries into social media (see www.stopzenith.com), drawing viewers into the mystery at its heart with engagement far beyond the film itself.
Is this is THE film THEY don’t want you to see?
