Blank is a 2022 British sci-fi film about a struggling author who finds herself trapped in an A.I. retreat with a malfunctioning android.
Directed by Natalie Kennedy (shorts: Down and Out; Doris; Trauma; Shed), making her feature film debut, from a screenplay written by Stephen Herman. Produced by Rebecca-Clare Evans of KenMor Films for Caged Film Ltd and Executive Produced by Lyndon Baldock of Templeheart Films in association with Marcia Do Vales of Enmar Productions.
The movie stars Heida Reed (FBI International; Poldark), Rachel Shelley (The L Word; Lagaan: Once Upon A Time in India) and Wayne Brady (Black Lightning).
Set in the near future, struggling author, Claire Rivers, sign up for a fully A.I. operated retreat to help her writer’s block, but when an unforeseen software glitch occurs, she gets trapped inside her unit with a malfunctioning android, a degenerating host and no communication with the outside world.
As time is running out, food supplies getting desperately low and the android becoming increasingly unstable, Claire must overcome her fears and find a way to outsmart the technology in order to make it out of the retreat alive…
Beautifully blending tension and drama, the film draws upon a number of contemporary themes that interweave seamlessly, including the impact of developing technology such as Artificial Intelligence, and our increased reliance upon it as we become more and more hooked into the digital world.
In the US, Blank will be released by Brainstorm Media theatrically in selected locations and On-Demand (VOD) on September 23, 2022.
