Dark Sky Films is distributing the upcoming thriller Level 16 this March. Thematically, think The Handmaid’s Tale mixed with “Joss Whedon’s criminally under-appreciated Dollhouse by way of Argento employing a desaturated palette” (Dark Sky’s words).

Level 16 is an underground boarding school in a dystopian society where women are indoctrinated as subservient. But teenage student Vivien cannot be broken and searches for a way out of the facility. She finds an unlikely ally in Sophia, a girl she once called her friend before she became a frenemy. Their one goal: Escape Level 16!

There WILL be a theatrical screening run! If you live near the proximity of any of the listed theaters below, watch for Level 16:

New York City – Nitehawk in Brooklyn

Level 16 will be released on both big and small screens March 1.

Sixteen-year-old Vivien is trapped in The Vestalis Academy, a prison-like boarding school, keeping to herself and sticking her neck out for no one. Until she is reunited with Sophia — the former friend who betrayed her. Together the girls embark on a dangerous search to uncover the horrifying truth behind their imprisonment. Soon running for their lives, the girls must save themselves or die trying.
