‘Where the past is forbidden, memories are treason.’
The Archivist is a 2020 American science-fiction Western feature film about a loner wanting to escape government restrictions and his past.
Directed by Eric Hand, who also co-stars, from a screenplay co-written by Bo Gardner, the Lost Highyway Films production stars Jennifer Giles, Steve Aaron and Kendall Moody.
In the year 2070, Caulder Benson is a government archivist officer charged by an increasingly invasive and restrictive regime to destroy all elements and remnants of his society’s self-indulgent and avaricious past. He has a license to use whatever means necessary to fulfil his duty. His reputation for success is unparalleled; his unorthodox methods, deadly.
A loner, Caulder keeps to himself, passing his days in a city bombarded with commercial and political propaganda further enforcing ideals he loathes. He dreams of a world beyond the city, free of restriction, unencumbered by obligation. However, he has a secret that could destroy him and alter the future of mankind…
