To save the world and rescue his kidnapped wife, Orpheus must penetrate this nefarious underworld and free the television airwaves. Armed with a futuristic guitar and a paranormal skateboard, Orpheus descends the parking garage to Hell to save Eurdyice and perform live on the EBN broadcast stage.
(One of the first screenings of the new REDUX edition)
A music driven cyberpunk thriller about a hard rocking singer coerced into becoming an electronically enhanced new-music diva by her high tech billionaire patron.
Set in the near future, her singing voice is used to control and energize the brains of employees that are being used as external processors for the corporation’s high tech clients. Referred to as Brain Cattle, the workers operate in a digital sweatshop processing binary algorithms, functioning musically as a chorus for the diva.
DANGER DIVA explores the conflict between high tech vs. high touch, and what it means to be human in a digitally enhanced future.
