The filmmaker Abel Ferrara brings us Zeros And Ones. A story inspired by the emotions we all felt in mid pandemic with a touch of his creative fiction.
Ethan Hawke (Training Day) and director Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant) join forces for this gritty, tense political-thriller set on one deadly night in Rome. Called to the city to stop an imminent terrorist bombing, soldier J.J. (Hawke) desperately seeks news of his imprisoned rebel brother, Justin (also Hawke), who holds knowledge that could thwart the attack. Navigating the capital’s darkened streets, J.J. races to a series of ominous encounters, hoping to keep the Vatican from being blown to bits.
The Bronx native directed several short movies while attending film school in the 70s. His debut in a full length film was with the rated X film 9 Lives Of A Wet Pussy. In 1972 his second film The Driller Killer was labeled as a ‘video nasties’ in the United Kingdom. After his third film, Ms.45 starring the late Zoë Lund in 1981 Ferrara became a filmmaker everyone wanted to work with. He is known for other films like King of New York, Bad Lieutenant, New Rose Hotel, Mary and among several others.
I was connected with the filmmaker Abel Ferrara to talk about Zeros And Ones. He talked about working with Ethan Hawke and cinematography. In addition, to the location he chose for this film and his future project with Shia LaBeouf.
Zeros And Ones is available in select theaters, On Demand and Digital.
