Alice In Chains have commented further on their new sci-fi film, ‘Black Antenna‘. That 90-minute feature will be released across 10 episodes and came about as the band were filming videos for each song on their latest album, “Rainier Fog“. According to an official press release:
“‘Black Antenna‘ tells the story of Alpha (played by ‘Green Book‘ actor Paul Sloan) and his 21 year-old daughter, Beta (Viktoriya Dov), who drive their beat-up truck across California in silence, speaking only telepathically. Together they rob and steal from the men the girl seduces, taking phones, laptops and whatever they can find.
Alpha is trying to build something – an antenna – desperately trying to find a way to get a message to their people back home. Meanwhile there are unspeakably dark forces who have discovered their existence and are now hell-bent on tracking them down and eradicating them before more of their kind can come and join them.”
Adam Mason directed the feature with the first two parts currently available here. Mason also co-write the film alongside Paul Sloan. Speaking of the project, Mason commented:
“This movie came out of nowhere for me. As soon as I heard the album, the music and lyrics spoke to me on a profoundly personal level and the film and subject matter was born directly out of that. I’ve always been a huge fan of Alice In Chains, and this has been a dream come true for me. ‘Black Antenna‘ is a perfect synergy of the band’s lyrics, and ‘Black Antenna‘ paints a dark and beautiful canvas of the deeply conflicted world we live in today.”
