IN THE SHADOWS

Erdem Tepegöz
, 2020, 90 Min

A sci-fi thriller in the dystopian setting of a run-down mine. Between the present and a bleak future a group of miners is controlled by an ubiquitous surveillance system. Zait begins to question the system and declares war on it.

Zait, played by the German-Turkish action star Numan Acar ("Homeland", "Prison Break"), is infected with a mysterious life-threatening skin disease. The system is merciless: people with ailments of any kind are destroyed. Mysteriously however, both errors in the machine and doubts in Zait's soon accumulate. He follows the cables of the surveillance cameras, which end in nothing, and comes across machines that no longer work. The world is ruled by the instructions of so-called officials that no one has ever seen. Over time the signs that they no longer exist solidify. But then from whom do the commands come? Who controls the system? In epic images that are reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's cult classic "12 Monkeys" Erdem Tepegöz tells a harrowing tale of the human quality of doing something, despite complete self-alienation, that one thinks is required without anyone having questioned the sense thereof. And in the end still manages to find a glimmer of hope. JJ
