Breeder is a 2020 Danish science-fiction horror feature film about an experiment in biohacking that traps a young couple in a dangerous, deadly situation. In nightmarish ways, the experiment questions basic human behaviour by asking: How far will we go to stay young forever?”
Directed by Jens Dahl (3 Things; writer of Pusher) from a screenplay by Sissel Dalsgaard Thomsen, the Beo Starling production stars Sara Hjort Ditlevsen (Borgman; Excuse Me), Anders Heinrichsen, Signe Egholm Olsen and Morten Holst.
Director Dahl explained to Deadline: “Some years ago I developed an interest in bio-hacking and life extension. In doing so, I encountered a dilemma: if we live longer, we will also maintain our power and privilege wonder… this dilemma is what sparked the idea for Breeder.”
Furthermore, Dahl told ScreenDaily: ”Breeder is a modern take on survival horror. It is an alternative love story set in a facility where humans are treated like animals for the sake of someone else’s longevity. We are going to explore the darker sides of biohacking to address the disenfranchisement so many – especially young people – feel today.”
LevelK is presenting the film to distributors at the virtual Cannes film market.
