In the upcoming sci-fi/horror film, BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION, while logging tapes of decade-old TV broadcasts, video archivist James (Harry Shum Jr.) discovers a surreal and disturbing clip that he believes is the product of a mysterious broadcast signal hacking. His discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that send him on an obsessive mission. Now James must confront two very real possibilities: that the video may be clues to a crime beyond all comprehension; and that whoever was behind them may be very aware that James is coming uncomfortably close to the truth.
BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION was inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in Chicago in the late 1980s, and remain unsolved to this day. The film is an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares, confronting our deepest, darkest fears of both man and machine.
BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION is directed by Jacob Gentry, written by Tim Woodall and Phil Drinkwater, and stars Harry Shum Jr. (Glee, Crazy Rich Asians), Chris Sullivan (This Is Us), and Kelley Mack (The Walking Dead). BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION will have its World Premiere at SXSW on Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 at 9:00pm EST. For more on the film, visit the office festival page here.
