Synopsis: LITTLE BROTHER explores the thematic dualities of the promise and peril of technological progress. The non-linear story is based on the fictional life of a best-selling author and Nobel Peace prize nominee armed with an unbreakable determination to battle tyranny. As governments issue more surveillance and control mechanisms on freedoms, the themes we present, wrapped in a fictional story, embody our fears for today, and our hopes for tomorrow. The narrative of the film takes place in an interview between our heroine and a high profile news anchor, as we get to know her intimately through her words as well as dive into her past and believe it or not, future memories.
Starring: Navid Negahban (Homeland, Brothers), Natalie Brown (Dawn of the dead), Stephen McHattie (300, Watchmen, Immortals).
