Brainfeeder Films has just released a trailer for Eddie Alcazar‘s Perfect, which premieres at the ongoing SXSW Film Festival. The footage is wild, looking like an ominous mix of Ex Machina and Lawnmower Man. I love the modern take on ugly, old-school technology that looks more like a fantasy than reality. This is catapulted to the near-top of my must-see festival list.
In the film, “A boy in a cold and stark modern house, in a vaguely science fictional world, is seduced by advertisements of perfection to install implantable characteristics directly into his body. The implants heal his dark, twisted visions, but come with a corporeal cost. He persists on applying them, hoping to reach perfection, but ultimately he discovers that purity of mind is not exactly as he’s imagined.”
Featuring music by Flying Lotus, Garrett Wareing, Courtney Eaton, Tao Okamoto with Maurice Compte, and Abbie Cornish star in the sci-fi thriller that’s executive produced by Steven Soderbergh!
Producers are Eddie Alcazar and Javier Lovato.
Director Eddie Alcazar was the winner of an art scholarship to AAU and named one of the 25 up and coming faces in Hollywood by Filmmaker Mag. He directed “Tapia” for HBO, and “FUCKKKYOUUU” a Sundance-selected short scored by Flying Lotus.
