The Villains is a feature film exploring the effects of new media on society and the individual. A group of students form a political micro-collective in their shared apartment. They are on a mission to utilize the internet and new media tools to coordinate empowerment of the masses, personal engagement and direct democracy.
The film is a loose new media take on Jean-Luc Godard's "La Chinoise", which was a loose new wave take on Dostoyevsky's novel, "The Possessed." Ultimately, it surveys ideologies of political change, revolution, violence and communal relationships through well-intentioned, but flawed characters.
