Zero is a contemporary homage to Chris Marker's classic La Jetée, told from the perspective of a woman.
A survivor of a global pandemic is chosen by scientists to time travel in an attempt to locate Patient Zero.
A pandemic survivor is chosen as the ideal candidate for time travel. Scientists send her into the past and future in their attempt to find and neutralize Patient Zero, but to save humanity she is forced to relive her forgotten past.
Zero is a woman’s story. Told from a woman’s perspective, the narrative shifts instantly. What decisions does a woman make? What makes up a woman’s heart, in the past, present, and future?
Zero is also document of New York City in 2020, shot on location in Manhattan and Brooklyn during the height of the pandemic’s lockdown.
Universal and specific, Zero will echo its themes to a wide audience.
