about the film and invite only digital release

When we made NETUSER, we expected a very different world than the one we find ourselves in. With the cancelation of all major film festivals this year, and the timeliness of our film, we decided it would be best to share it as widely as possible now.

By signing up with your email address you will receive a digital code to watch the short film online in its entirety.

We hope it provides people a short burst of adrenaline in these strange times.

NETUSER explores our fears that the fraying of our political discourse is the result of manipulation by foreign influences – not just in social media, but in our most private interactions. When Peter Sardovski inadvertently becomes the victim of a devastating social media backlash, threats to his family expose dark truths about Peter’s own history. Reflecting on the 50-year cycle of political upheaval that began with the assassinations of MLK and RFK, NETUSER asks how conspiracies have changed in the current era, and how effective forces keep us complacent as the political process unfolds.

Tony Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Denis O’Hare plays Peter Sardovski, an activist whose life unravels when a nightmare about political violence turns true. Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Award nominee Claybourne Elder plays his husband who struggles to prevent Peter’s compulsion from endangering their young son. Two time Tony Award nominee Johanna Day will play his sister-in-law, a NYPD detective who struggles to shield her brother’s family from danger. The film also features Tatiana Wechsler as Peter’s editor Jenny.
