MONDAY 21 MARCH 2022 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today across DIY, indie & alternative cinema including one-off screen events, film seasons, film festivals & our selection of new releases.
ZEROS AND ONES d. Abel Ferrara, 2021 preview screening presented by Deeper Into Movies at Moth Club (21 MAR 19:30).
“Set near Vatican City in Rome, Ferrara’s thriller follows a US soldier, played by Hawke, in the aftermath of an apocalyptic siege as he navigates a world of fear and paranoia. In a distinctly Ferrara-esque statement, the filmmaker said “Zeros and Ones is a film of lockdown and war, danger and espionage, American soldiers, Chinese middlemen, Mid Eastern holy men, provocateurs, diplomats, rogue elements of the CIA and KGB.” (Deeper Into Movies)
