Blank

2022

A desperate writer signs up for a fully A.I. operated retreat to cure her writer’s block, but when an unforeseen software glitch occurs, she gets trapped inside her unit with an unstable android and no communication with the outside world.

Set in the near future, Blank delivers a unique and unsettling portrait of a successful writer wrestling with writer’s block and her buried past while being held hostage by a corrupted A.I. system. Beautifully blending tension and drama, the film draws upon a number of contemporary themes that interweave seamlessly. The film explores issues surrounding mental health as well as the impact of developing technology such as artificial intelligence (A.I.), and our increased reliance upon it as we become more and more hooked into the digital world.

“Blank feels like a Stephen King story that never quite made it to print. Natalie Kennedy delivers a compelling story that thrives on its isolation atmosphere along with its performances from Rachel Shelley and Heida Reed” 4/5

“The film itself feels like a feature-length episode of Black Mirror” 4/5
