Written, directed by and starring Christopher Soren Kelly, The Tangle is the story of what happens beyond the internet. The film is all about a secret government agency that watches over the Tangle, which is packed with nanobots and microdrones that make up the air, the water and the blood of human beings. Now, there is no way to keep a secret, as every thought is made up by the S.O.L. (Secure OnTangle Line), made up of quantum encrypted hard drives implanted in the brains of its users, which is everyone.
A secret government agency called the A.S.P. (Army of Simply Purity) watches over the Tangle from within technology safe rooms, safe from being, well, entangled inside the internet reality that has taken over the world. When a field agent is murdered in one of those rooms — the first murder in three years — the Tangle may be compromised.
The main suspect is Carter Carmine, a private detective who was one of the people who helped to create the Tangle. He’s had the hard drive removed from his brain, but he already somehow figured out how to keep hidden from the Tangle. So what is he hiding?
It turns out that the tools that can fix the Tangle and solve the murder are ones that existed before technology took over. Can reality be saved?
This is Kelly’s first full-length film and it’s already a winner. I’m looking forward to what comes next, because this film is filled with unexpected moments and ideas. You can learn more at the Facebook fan page.
The Tangle is available on demand.
