37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024


Set after a catastrophic event known as The Reset, this film examines humanity’s attempt to rebuild using aged technology under the watchful eye of an authoritarian corporation. When a friend’s suicide leaves behind a mysterious computer drive, a fringe hacker and an accomplished computer technician must come together to decipher the message left in his wake. First-time filmmaker Carleton Ranney effortlessly combines a low-fi aesthetic with an intensely ambitious sci-fi story, creating a work that manages to satisfy as both a retro throwback and a forward-thinking indie drama. Discussion with director Carleton Ranney, producer Rebecca Rose Perkins, writer-producer Destin Douglas, and moderator Joe Fab
