The Creators of Papers, Please the Short Film are Now Adapting Beholder - Set to Release in 2018

Postby ccgr » Fri Sep 14, 2018 10:58 pm

Russian directors, the founders of KINODOM Production and the creators of the
official short film adaptation of the game Papers, Please Nikita Ordynskiy and
Liliya Tkach are working on the official Beholder short film.

‘We are preserving the approach that we have developed while working on the Papers,
Please adaptation: we try to vividly depict the original game and avoid adding any
imagined details,’ says Nikita, ‘That's why we’ve decided to go with a
black-and-white reproduction, drop the dialogues and stick to a silent movie. We
believe that this approach will help us convey the grim atmosphere of the game
best.’

Carl (depicted in the photo above, played by actor Evgeniy Stychkin) is a
government-installed landlord in a totalitarian State who has been appointed to spy
on his tenants. Will he follow the commands of the Government or side with the
people who suffer from the oppressive directives?

Inspired heavily by George Orwell’s groundbreaking 1984 the philosophical narrative
of Beholder, opens up questions around issues of social and moral values. If you are
given the power to destroy privacy, should you follow the orders of the giver? Or
should you treat those that you spy on the way they deserve? Who decides what is
deserved? And what if two different people deserve to be saved, but one has to go?
Who will you choose?
