Welcome to the future, where the entertainment is us.
Years into a benevolent alien occupation of Earth, the human race is still adjusting to the new world order and its quirky coffee table-sized overlords called the Vuvv. Their flashy advanced technology initially held promise for global prosperity, but rendered most human jobs – and steady income – obsolete.
When 17-year-old artist Adam Campbell (Asante Blackk) and new girlfriend Chloe Marsh (Kylie Rogers) discover the Vuvv are particularly fascinated with human love and will pay for access to it, they decide to livestream their budding romance to make extra cash for themselves and their families. Life is good, for a while, until the flame of their teenage love fizzles out and they’re forced to make very different, absurdly life-altering sacrifices for their families.
Based on the book by M.T. Anderson, Landscape with Invisible Hand is executive produced by Brad Pitt, Gabby Shepard, David Kern, M.T. Anderson, Megan Ellison and Tiffany Haddish. The film is written for the Screen and Directed by Cory Finley. In theaters August 18th.
