“0s & 1s may be the ultimate has-to-be-seen-more-than-once movie.” - Neil Genzlinger, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Smartly made and completely funny! Does a tremendous job of capturing the hysteria of social media.”-Lena Dunham (GIRLS, TINY FURNITURE)
0S & 1S (pronounced “Zeros and Ones”) is a visually audacious comedy about our obsession and overreliance on the very screen you’re looking at now. Spinning the LA sounds of No Age, Ariel Pink, Wavves, Mika Miko, Abe Vigoda and more, Eugene Kotlyarenko’s savvy directorial debut makes its Los Angeles theatrical premiere September 20th. Tapping into our familiarity with the language of the digital age (IM chats, widgets, virus warnings), 0S & 1S tells the deceptively simple, highly energetic story of James Pongo (Morgan Krantz) and his Computer. Pongo’s got a cushy job, a busy social life, and an alluring love interest all coming at him right through his portable devices. When he wakes up after a night of partying to discover his laptop is missing, Pongo’s hyper-connected reality takes a nosedive. Now he must do everything in his power to figure out who stole his livelihood and get his life back. 83 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated.

“Has a compulsive ADD vibrancy to it…a completely inventive narrative technique.”- Jonah Green, THE HUFFINGTON POST
