In the style of V for Vendetta, this philosophical action-thriller packs in an all-star cast including Hovik Keuchkerian (Assassin’s Creed 2016) and Juan Pablo Shuk (Netflix’s Narcos 2016).
Doni, unemployed and newly single, is adrift. David is a bankrupt TV producer. Max is a cop who has lost faith in the law and Jack is a hacker who has just served 5 years in prison. Four individuals, fed up with the world changing their lives, decide it is time to the change the world. Together they create an online utopia free from government influence or control. To get the word out, they hijack the airwaves and orchestrate an elaborate “news” broadcast urging people to demand access to the system. Directly tackling the dissemination of fake news, especially in an era where its spread echoes Orson Welles’s panic-inducing War of the Worlds broadcast, this elaborate plot unfolds via flashback as the story of these four freedom fighters is revealed.
A Spanish micro-budget miracle shot for an astonishing €6,000, David Sousa’s Re-evolution is an innovative, ambitious project and a tribute to the talent of Spain who came together to make the film a possibility.
