The A.S.P. around our Neck... The key to The Tangle

Other Worlds Film Festival is thrilled to announce the Texas premiere of the lyrical SciFi film, THE TANGLE. This special screening takes place on Wednesday, September 18 (7:30pm) at Galaxy Highland 10 Theatre. THE TANGLE made its World Premiere at Sci-Fi-London and won Best Film at Roswell SciFi Film Fest.

In the near future, the Tangle an AI with airborne nanotech, connects the world.  

The Tangle is benevolent; it has stopped crime, keeps us well and safe.  But to make sure it never turns rogue a government agency watches over them from within technology safe rooms, locations impermeable to the nanobots that make up the Tangle. When field agent Margot Foster is found dead in one of these rooms, the agency needs to investigate the first murder in years.

It seems at least one person has escaped the Tangle and is trying to reach out to others. The following is her second attempt:

Okay. I'm trying this again. I still have no idea if anybody is getting this but I have to try. If I am the only one left trying I'd rather try and fail then to give in to The Tangle.

If you are outside The Tangle then what I am going to tell you is probably going to sound crazy. I will tell you that part of the reason why everyone went along with it is because they never really fully understood what they were agreeing to. How could they? It didn't even seem possible but it did seem desirable. And that's the problem. We all want safety. We all want security. But what are we willing to give up for it. Most people were willing to give everything up.


They call them A.S.P. which stands for the Army of Simple Purity. They watch over The Tangle from within these technology safe rooms. Places the nanobots cannot get to them, places impermeable and, well, “untangled.” They may be the only one who are listening to me. If so I am probably not going to be around much longer but I don't think A.S.P. is the problem. They may be the solution. They know how The Tangle works and how to turn it off.

Embedded in this message is a digital tracker. You won't be able to find me but if you broadcast to this signal I will hear you. There are no secrets left in this world. Swarms of micro drones fill the air and the water and our very blood. But if you can find a way to get a message to me, I will hear you. We are not alone and even those trapped in The Tangle would be with us if they only knew. If you know anything else about A.S.P. and how to get ahold of them securely, or how to break in to the S.O.L., the quantum encrypted hard drive implanted in our brains, please share it. We have to find a way to defeat our digital destruction.

Stay tuned.
