What will it take to stop 'Zenith'? This film may have the answers.
Zenith could be another small budget sleeper thinkpiece. Or. Complete psycho babble twaddle. Hard to say from the trailer and the clip embedded below. But we're always game for films with alternating timelines and conspiracy theories.
Zenith is a retro-futuristic steam-punk thriller, about two men in two time periods, whose search for the same grand conspiracy leads them to question their own humanity.Starting from a fictional recreation of Stanley Milgram's Obedience to Authority experiment, Zenith plunges into exploring multifaceted dimensions of the human experience. The film follows two parallel stories - of father and son - now, and 40 years into the future. Searching for the same elusive conspiracy, both father and son find no answers; instead, their journeys unravel their lives and force them to look deep and hard at themselves and their surroundings. In the end, they are both confronted with the same Faustian bargain - but each one chooses a very different path.
