In fantasy-thriller Level 16, teen-aged Vivien (Emmy-nominated actress Katie Douglas) and Sophia’s (Celina Martin) are locked away in a sterile top secret facility where they’re taught the finer points of “feminine virtues” by Miss Brixil (Sara Canning), a Stepford-like headmistress, and left to question what fate awaits them when they age out of the institution.
Writer/director Danishka Esterhazy (Black Field, H&G) “crafts a sinister allegory that packs a wicked feminist punch.” Featuring striking imagery and charismatic performances, this critically acclaimed thriller is said to be an intense and furiously cerebral experience like no other.
"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."
Level 16 also stars Peter Outerbridge (BBC’s "Orphan Black"), Alexis Whelan (Lucky 7), and Amalia Williamson (TV’s "Northern Rescue").
Look for Level 16 on DVD and Blu-ray April 30th, 2019 from Dark Sky Films.
