(MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2020) Dana Ziyasheva's Greatland, a dystopian fantasy, comes to Amazon video on demand Sunday, 1 November 2020. Greatland, with a Ziyasheva written screenplay, stars Eric Roberts, Nick Moran, J.P. Manoux, Bill Oberst Jr, Shannon Briggs, Arman Darbo, and Chloe Ray Warmoth.
The film, set in a futuristic vintage style Los Angeles, revolves around rebellious non-binary teenager Ulysses and their mission their childhood sweetheart. The story unfolds in the midst of a ridiculously absurd election, a deadly virus outbreak, chaos, and violence.
Whilst the story is ridiculously bizarre, noting current global issues, Greatland is thoroughly entertaining. This is a world where boys are married to trees, cats and dogs run for President, and the Virus has become a new religion.
