Recently screened at TIFF, and a winner at the Moscow International Film Fest, Javor Gardev's neo-noir flick Zift looks fantastic, not that I've had a chance to see it yet, but our boy John Allison has. In doing a little research on a film called Zincograph, I discovered Gardev is behind this as well as one other film in development which sound like great genre fare. Javor calls Zincograph a "political psycho-thriller." In his own words: "The premise is simple -- what would happen if a maniacal former agent of the communist secret police takes a proactive approach, starts to "recruit" unsuspecting people to spy on each other and thus develops his own network of informants, strictly private and invisible for the institutions? This is a farcically sinister story driven by the workings of the mind of a former agent turned psychopathic schemer, who pulls a roguish act on the entire political system that has rejected him. The next project he has in the works is simply called Neon which he calls a "tragicomic dystopian adventure." "The story takes us into the far future of Neo Thrace -- a fictional country created on the Balkans in the aftermath of the Grand Atomic Anomaly. Like in a crooked mirror, the country of Neo-Thrace reflects the totalitarian past and the present state of affairs in the Balkan region." Gardev is currently looking for co-producers on both projects, which in my opinion, sound fantastic, so someone help him out! In case you missed Zift, you can check out the trailer after the break.
