Alice In Chains have shared some more information on their 90-minute sci-fi film “Black Antenna.” The movie, which was produced and directed by Adam Mason, is inspired by the band’s latest album “Rainier Fog” and it will be released across ten different episodes. If you missed them, the first two parts can be found HERE.
The following was said in a press release:
“‘Black Antenna‘ tells the story of Alpha (played by ‘Green Book‘ actor Paul Sloan) and his 21 year-old daughter, Beta (Viktoriya Dov), who drive their beat-up truck across California in silence, speaking only telepathically. Together they rob and steal from the men the girl seduces, taking phones, laptops and whatever they can find.
Alpha is trying to build something – an antenna – desperately trying to find a way to get a message to their people back home. Meanwhile there are unspeakably dark forces who have discovered their existence and are now hell-bent on tracking them down and eradicating them before more of their kind can come and join them.”
Mason also added:
“This movie came out of nowhere for me. As soon as I heard the album, the music and lyrics spoke to me on a profoundly personal level and the film and subject matter was born directly out of that. I’ve always been a huge fan of Alice In Chains, and this has been a dream come true for me. ‘Black Antenna‘ is a perfect synergy of the band’s lyrics, and ‘Black Antenna‘ paints a dark and beautiful canvas of the deeply conflicted world we live in today.”
