Trapped in a prison-like school, 16-year-old Vivien (Katie Douglas) and Sophia (Celina Martin) 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. Featuring striking imagery and charismatic performances, this sci-fi thriller is an intense and furiously cerebral experience like no other. A cold, dystopian vision with echoes of THE HANDMAID’S TALE, LEVEL 16 is an essential film for our time. Director Danishka Esterhazy proves she has a knack for female-centric storytelling with this twist-filled thriller with dark political undertones.
