The new sci-fi movie
Black Bits is Alessio Liguori’s return to directing after Shortcut, which achieved great success in America where it remained in the US top ten for a month.
The new project is a sci-fi thriller enriched by an international cast, an Italy-Poland co-production, produced by Minerva Pictures, Simona Ferri, Agresywna Banda and distributed in cinemas by Altre Storie with Minerva Pictures.
The film tells a cross-section of that current hyper-technological world in which real life merges with virtual life and defining the border becomes almost utopia. At the center of the story two young women Dora and Beth, skilled scammers, who after a major robbery of Black Bits, a company active in the dark web, hide in a futuristic Safe House in the mountains, unaware that the real danger is right there, where nothing is as it seems. The film stars Yvonne Mai, Jordan Alexandra, Sebastian Fabijanski and Amelia Clay. The screenplay is written by Daniele Cosci, Fabio Sieni and Carlo Andrea Maucci.
The director, introducing the film, said: “On the threshold of a new era, already imagined by cinema and literature with the development of artificial intelligence and its relative risks, with the enhancement of calculation thanks to quantum computers, the virtual merges with reality, above all with the announced development of neurochip technology. Black Bits fits perfectly into this context by imagining the development of neuronal technology and its potential and dangerous ludic uses. The analogue reality merges with the virtual and voyeuristic one and the border between real and imaginary is crossed and extremely manipulated. A film built on tension and mystery wrapped up in a spiral that explodes in the final action where twists are the masters“.
