Virus Film Able to Premiere at Sitges
The other day we received a heads up from filmmaker Will Stotler about a new film he co-created with director Marc Robert called Able which, though we may have not heard of it before now, is premiering at the prestigious Sitges Film Festival, so obviously this is one we need to keep our eyes on.
Able takes place in Berlin, a city under quarantine due to a horrific virus that has swept across the city. It can paralyze the human body in three days. Those who are infected are trapped in their bodies, waiting for their terrible end. Those who are immune, well, they react to their situation in a diverse amount of ways:
Benny Berg seeks to save his father, Ivo. Partially crippled Katrin is stalked by someone who wants to kill her--or worse. Almost incapacitated, Marieke drowns herself. Meat cleaver in hand, Niko grows increasingly frustrated with her "dead" limbs. Rudi suddenly finds Berlin ripe for the taking. Pastor Bernhard preaches to a spastic flock of parishioners. And Captain Hofler firmly believes the military is coming--but to incinerate everyone.
The film will premiere at Sitges on Friday, October 3rd at 9:30PM so if you’re lucky enough to be going, seek it out. You can see the trailer and a selection of images from Able below, and more are available at its production website. Keep it here for updates on Able as they come in!
