Broadcast Signal Intrusion

  •   Jacob Gentry
  •   United States

On November 22, 1987, a masked figure interrupted broadcasts on two Chicago TV stations in a mysterious hack that was never solved. In 1999, while archiving videotapes in the basement of one of the stations, AV tech whiz James (Crazy Rich Asians’s Harry Shum Jr.) stumbles across grainy footage of a cryptic figure in the middle of an old news program. The discovery sends James on a search for answers, and he soon uncovers unexpected connections to the inexplicable disappearance of his wife years earlier. Channeling Antonioni’s classic Blow-Up and ’70s paranoid cinema, this throwback thriller cleverly taps into the uncanny allure of analog technology as it charts the perils of personal obsession.
