Set in the autonomous, rebel State of Jefferson in 2029, the film tells the story of an ex-military cyborg who risks his life to protect a mysterious woman from her dangerous ex. He’s aided by his A.I. implant “Clyde” who proves partner and friend.
Written and directed by Gary Lundberg, “Black Road” stars Sam Daly, Simon Templeman, Leilani Sarelle and Michelle Lombardo. It was shot in Ashland and along the south coast of Oregon. The film lasts 80 minutes.
“I first saw this movie late last year at the Astoria International Film Festival and was very impressed,” said Hoffman Center film program leader David Dillon. “Someone called it a ‘futuristic neo-noir thriller’ and I think that’s an apt description.”
