64th TIFF: Greek Premiere

An uncompromising vision that pushes the emerging retro sci-fi genre to a stunning and grotesque future, follows an otherworldly human existence in a barren wasteland. Following in his father’s footsteps, a man who has attained immortality, both literal and figurative, is the pharmaceutical mogul who has dedicated his life to Divinity, a civilization-altering substance that grants its users eternal youth – to devastating effects for humanity. Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita, they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality.  Produced and presented by Steve Soderbergh, this stunningly stylized, mind-melting head trip (nasty, brutish, sexy, and shiny in equal measure) offers a stunning retro-futuristic vision of humanity in which our worst has become a glorified aesthetic pursuit, a goal in itself. A cult classic in the making.

Eddie Alcazar

Eddie Alcazar is an American director, writer, producer, and game developer. Unconfined by genre, his multi-technique approach to visual storytelling is an exploration of undiscovered cinematic territories. He coined the term “Meta-Scope” to describe a visionary technique that blends live-action and stop-motion. Alcazar was the winner and sole recipient of a worldwide art and design competition, receiving a scholarship to the Academy of Art University where he studied VFX and Animation Film Theory. He was named one of the 25 New Faces of Film by Filmmaker Magazine and one of the best new directors in America by Shoot Magazine. His work includes the award-winning and AICP-shortlisted commercial Everlast Astral and the Berlin Fashion Festival-winning Versace Bright Crystal. In 2013, he directed the documentary Tapia with Executive Producer 50 Cent for HBO, and in 2016 his film collaboration with Flying Lotus Fuckkkyouuu premiered at Sundance.
