BIFFF & Bif Market have the pleasure to announce the 2 selected Belgian projects (Work In Progress) that will be presented at Blood Windows (the Film Market during Ventana Sur) in Buenos Aires during the B2 TV Project Pitch Session next december :
Speculative fiction series UNSEEN tells the story of how, over twenty days, people and their families face a mysterious phenomenon: some of them become invisible.
Their invisibility becomes a handicap or a power, a tool of protection, voyeurism, vengeance or domination.
Very quickly, danger threatens the unseen. To keep the epidemic under control, the medical authorities scheme a trap that closes down on all the unseen.
The combat opposing “power vs. morality” resurges like never before. To dominate the unseen and transform them in the ultimate means of power, one just needs to ignore them. As for the unseen, once they are blinded by their new powers, they will immediately abuse these powers. This story confronts us to our wish to see what we like. A story that speaks of our blindness.
