‘Globe’ is an upcoming independent two hour sci-fi horror thriller from French filmmaker Jonathan Musset, currently in post production. The story takes place mostly at night in the French city of Nantes, which creates a dark, claustrophobic and, at times, surreal atmosphere. We have two clips from ‘Globe’ for you inside, providing a respective glimpse into two aspects of the story. ‘Globe’ is anticipated for release later this year.
Faro defeats an old man in a clandestine contest of “Wiphala”, a game involving a form of teleportation known simply as “Voyage”. He is then challenged by Marius who suspects Faro of cheating.
Some time later, Nattie, a young English woman arrives in France to learn how to control the unusual faculty of being able to read minds she has had since childhood. Her arrival was although expected by mysterious individuals, which leads to unexpected consequences of her journey.
Nattie and her brother visit a special clinic in France to meet her childhood doctor and to reclaim a small globe that he took from her when she was little. Reunited with her globe Nattie rediscovers her ability to “voyage” but, despite help from others at the clinic, her fear of the dark remains; a mysterious couple with a connection to Faro, Marius, and an unsolved murder, and watchers tracing her every move.
The cast of globe brings together aspiring and, to date, unknown actors: two English actors, three actors from Paris, and about a dozen actors from the west of the France. Author and director Jonathan Musset, who wrote the first version of the story, drew his inspiration for the scenario, as well as the visual language of ‘Globe’, from films like ‘Sixth Sense’, ‘Karate Kid’, ‘Reservoir Dogs’, and the ‘Matrix’ trilogy, although choosing a real world nighttime setting. The English dialogue, which dominates the film, was written by Bart Hulley.
