Marteinn Thorsson’s science fiction epic, PROTOS, has been selected for B’EST: Baltic East by West Producers’ Workshop.
PROTOS had previously been awarded a phase-one script grant from the Icelandic Film Centre.
The screenplay is inspired by Joseph Conrad’s novella HEART OF DARKNESS, which was also the basis for Francis Ford Coppola’s APOCALYPSE NOW, but PROTOS takes place in 3113 and centers on an amnesiac mercenary, HERA HANSEN, who is sent a mission by the World Corp Organization to track down and kill multi-billionaire HANS PO, but he has apparently gone mad on his volcanic island in Sector 354.
Thorsson describes the film as a philosophical cousin of Blade Runner and Apocalypse Now with the stylistic and tonal qualities of Sin City and Valhalla Rising.
