Db5f4e3f92 posterA critical point of view of a story about a wooden mankin that represents the masses of individuals in our days, who live according to the motto “Use-Consume-throw away”
In a time where humanistic values are exposed to erosion, where objects and items dominate our consume society the human being becomes a ware too. The masses of individuals who live according the motto “Use-Consume-throw away” represented by the wooden mankin, live a life, that only makes sense when consuming because every day is a repeat of the day before. The film “Barcode” wants to show how the mankin becomes a slave of the system believing that consuming and freedom are equivalent and how he turns into the piece of waste that is the only product of a consume society.

TV SHOW: Z, by Jose Padilha

9ba6541133 posterThe wonderful images of the Iguazu National Park, its fauna and flora, the Iguazu Falls and the Devil’s Throat, are transformed into a desolate environment, an apocalyptic world, in an exciting story of love, hate, adventure, suspense, and horror.
An unsuccessful experience with the rabies virus starts a contagion and an unprecedented pandemic, turning humans into violent zombies.
Using as part of the scenario, the human anthill’s labyrinths of “Ciudad del Este” in Paraguay, and the borderland of Foz do Iguazu in Brazil, a chaotic world which emerges from irrational businessmen’s ambitions from international corporations.
A consortium of international companies led by Vital Import Corp.’s funds research of chemical weapons made in a clandestine laboratory in Lai Lai Shopping Center’s underground, in Paraguay.
The survivors, unknown until then, are trapped in an abandoned market. The relationship between them reveals internal conflicts, destabilizing the fragile physical and psychological structures of the new market inhabitants.
The inner and outer logic, good and evil, places to the test their concepts, forcing them to discuss and re-evaluate their ethical and moral conduct, while a scary and dangerous universe is formed outside the market.
A horde of ferocious and hungry zombies approaches and surrounds the market on every side.
A powerful metaphor of our time, where religious and political intolerance is about to reveal a fissure in society.

Writer Biography – Jeremy Storey

35d725fc70 headshot

Jeremy Storey, originally hails from the United Kingdom, but now resides in Seattle, WA. He first discovered the joys of writing at school, penning short stories and collaborating on comic books with his friends. Coming from a writerly family, it was clearly in his DNA to tell stories. However, it wasn’t until he graduated University, that he started to dabble in film and stage.
Since then, he’s written feature length screenplays (The Immaculate Secret, Rewind, Pink Slip Party), as well as award-winning short screenplays (Cat & Mouse, Wishbone, Tower of Strength) and award-winning stage plays (Last Cup of Sorrow, Wolves at the Door). For Jeremy, writing is a form of catharsis. His stories clearly reflect his love of exploring emotions, characters, and worlds that only reside in the deepest recess of the imagination. In turn, he hopes what he writes, readers and viewers will find entertaining, compelling and authentic.
