Our Future without privacy...Are we constantly being watched? Are we constantly being controlled?
STRANGE LOOP FILMS presents "Dissidence"
In the year 2084, a government agent chooses to go without his mandated phone. This begins to open his eyes as he learns the consequences of speaking out against the surveillance state he is living in.
Directors Statement: "Dissidence (2084) was first inspired by my study abroad trip to Budapest Hungary. As I learned more about Hungarian history and culture, I was extremely fascinated by how fascism and communism affected Hungarian culture. In a period of 2 years 1/20 Hungarians were sent the the Russian Gulag for political crimes. Today, these horrors seem like the distant past. However, with the the rise of cellphones and other technologies perfect for surveillance use, Dissidence stands as a warning to the importance of freedom of privacy and free speech often traded for convenience and 'safety'. This film was carefully planned to not alienate modern day viewers with a world happening in the distant future, or a far away place as many Sci-Fi's traditionally do. This is because the ideas in this film have already started to become a reality in our society." - Matthew Brdlik Written and Directed by: Matthew Brdlik
