Project Description


DYSTOPIA is a new kind of user-generated cinema. Core decisions were made by a community and a professional team of filmmakers shot the film.
John (Andy Gätchen) tries to save the life of his wife Ava (Luka Omoto) and transfers her consciousness into cyberspace. But his first attempt to join her fails and a dangerous artifical intelligence is created.
