LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, October 10, 2008 â€“ Following its heralded New York City theatrical release last month, ABLE DANGER, Paul Krikâ€™s acclaimed independent noir homage and conspiracy thriller, will make its West Coast debut during a week-long exclusive engagement at Laemmle Grande 4-plex in Downtown Los Angeles beginning October 31. ABLE DANGER will also be represented by The Oracle Film Group at the American Film Market Nov. 5-12 in Santa Monica.
“Playing to a sold out crowd in New York on 9/11 was sublime and epitomized why I made the film as it is intended to be a good date movie that will give you something political to talk about later on in the evening,â€? said Krik. â€œIt was the outcome of the last election that threw me into a noir-worldview and served as impetus to make the film. I’m very much looking forward to playing in Los Angeles on the day of the presidential election and in general, throw a wrench in the zeitgeist as best I can. Indeed, anyone who emails me a cell phone pic of their vote for Obama will get a free ticket to the show.”
ABLE DANGER is the story of Thomas Flynn, a Brooklyn 9/11 truther (played by Adam Nee), who falls into a noir pastiche when a mysterious Eastern European beauty (played by Elina LÃ¶wensohn, Independent Spirit Award nominee for â€œNadjaâ€?) arrives at his bookstore-cafÃ© with irrefutable proof of American secret intelligence involvement in the planning and execution of 9/11. When Thomas is implicated in the murder of his friend and employee, heâ€™s forced to unravel her complex web of lies while attempting to fight his natural attraction to her. As it turns out, she possesses the Able Danger hard-drive, the smoking gun that proves the identities and methods of the real architects of 9/11, and Thomas is willing to risk everything to expose the truth. The film gets its title from the real secret government program of the same name that destroyed 2.5 terabytes of data in March 2001, and the cafÃ© featured is based on the very real Brooklyn cafÃ© for radical readers, Vox Pop.
With a Masters Degree in existential philosophy and a background in TV commercials, most recently known for his Kanye West mock-infomercial viral (as seen on YouTube), Krik has created ABLE DANGER, his first feature film. It has been blazing the festival trail, starting at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam where it premiered in a 400-seat theater, selling out all three nights, and opened the Brooklyn International Film Festival where it received Outstanding Achievement in Production. It then screened at Cannes, and was an Official Selection at the Transylvania, Philadelphia, Pifan (Korea) & Warsaw film festivals.
