BELOW ZERO - 2012 OFFICIAL SELECTION!

August 25, 2012


Inspired by true events, BELOW ZERO is the story of 'Jack the Hack', a once successful screenwriter who now faces writer's block. Desperate to meet a career-saving deadline and escape the distractions of his troubled life, Jack arranges to be locked inside a meat cooler, with only vegetarian meals and his imagination to inspire him. As the temperature drops, the lines between reality and fiction blur, and Jack's script comes dangerously to life. Will he make the most important deadline of his career? Or is Jack 'just a hack'?


While writing the script, the actual screenwriter and producer of BELOW ZERO, Signe Olynyk, arranged to have herself physically locked in the meat freezer of an abandoned, remote slaughterhouse. That's partly how this story developed.
