Beautifully blending tension and drama, the film draws upon a number of contemporary themes that interweave seamlessly, including the impact of developing technology such as Artificial Intelligence, and our increased reliance upon it as we become more and more hooked into the digital world.
The debut feature of award-winning director Natalie Kennedy (Down and Out), Blank has already earned acclaim and Best Picture wins at several international sci-fi and genre film festivals. Blank stars Heida Reed (FBI International, Poldark), Rachel Shelley (The L Word, Lagaan: Once Upon A Time in India) and popular American TV host Wayne Brady (Black Lightning).

As time is running out, food supplies getting desperately low and the android becoming increasingly unstable, Claire must overcome her fears and find a way to outsmart the technology in order to make it out of the retreat alive…
Blank will be released in the UK later this year
