Venture into a world, not too dissimilar to our own — one of mass surveillance, pervasive policing, and increasing individual apathy.

Set in a world chillingly similar to our own, Empty Metal follows the heterogenous lives of a disaffected punk band, a family of militant indigenous Americans, a Rastafarian computer hacker and a Buddhist hermit in their path towards revolutionary action. Lashing out against racialised police brutality, mass surveillance and indifference, this network of marginal forces collaborates under the radar by means of telepathic, non-complicit communication in a dangerous assassination plot. Simulated drone imagining, camcorder shots and high-definition footage are weaved together in a tangled thread of narratives to reveal an alternative reality of asymmetrical revolt and radical militancy in the face of imminent destruction.

Filled with energy, rage, and the smallest measure of hope, Empty Metal is a new kind of political film for these extraordinary times. - Film Society of Lincoln Centre
