In a world of useless products, police brutality, pre-paid dreams and a list of Violations so long if you laugh too loudly you will be fined. Misner Corporation has invented a new source of energy which has given them a global monopoly on all facets of human life, creating a totalitarian society ruled by one man, Misner. Anyone not willing to work for Misner's regime, lives underground in a dark world of insane 'system dropouts'. Only coming above ground for the 1 hour of darkness which takes place each day when a giant ball of rubbish floats between the sun and the earth. Finnegan Wright a lower level worker at Misner Corp. is taken on an enthralling journey when forced to live underground by one of the 'System dropouts' who convinces Finnegan that he can change the fate of the world by Killing Misner. A satire which comments on the way humans are so easily fooled into buying products they don't need, having ridiculous jobs and worshiping leaders that have no respect for the planet ...Written by
I watched this film at MUFF a while back and have been chasing it up since. Waiting for a release in Australia so I can get the DVD. It was a really ambitious film for a bunch of young filmmakers. I would be interested in seeing in a finished format because apparently the MUFF screening was unfinished. It won that festival and has won a few others since. So I hope it gets a release here. Though with the way the Australian film industry is I doubt it will. If you like films with a intense storyline this one will be good for you.
I love the old guy who played Misner. What else has he done? I am also looking out for the main character who takes the worker underground. He was great. Though for a film with the word Children in the title I didn't see many.
