"In 2023, the Bentham Grid goes online..."

In the near future, instant DNA identification has created an information grid that makes crime extremely difficult and anonymity impossible. But suddenly the same ID’s started to appear in different locations.

A superb short film, that’s wonderfully shot, edited and written, that provides insight into the growing eye of Big Brother. The film is set in a near-futuristic New York, that has become a totalitarian state that has gained a total control through surveillance, watching every move one would make.

“The Grid takes all those things unique to you, your social security number, your passport, your debit and credit accounts and links them to one thing…your DNA. With just a touch, the Grid collects a tiny sample of your genetic material, ID-ing you instantly. Then a purchase can be deducted directly from your personal accounts, or you can unlock and start your car and it all works within a margin error of 0.001% ….the ultimate social network!”

The themes and ideas that we see in Plurality is not all that indigenous to us, especially the technology that has been introduced in the film. That way Plurality seems to be less sci-fi and more of a plausibility of what is waiting for us in future. In that way, it serves as a warning to us of what might occur with governments of the world trying to find more and more ways on keeping an eye on the people it has to serve.

Directed by first time director, Dennis Liu, Plurality has been a project that he as well as his exceptionally talented team has been working on for the past 2 years, with a very small budget. Although it must be said that all that hard work certainly paid off, as the stunning FX, wonderful Narration, and overall excellent quality goes to show just how talented this group of people really is.

On YouTube the film has already amassed over 240 000 views in just over three weeks. Hopefully Liu will get the exposure he needs as well as gain the faith from some studio exec’s to invest in Liu and turn this wonderful short, into a glorious Full Length Feature.
