Into Dust showcases the strength of young filmmaking talent in the region.
In a dystopian future, the world is split into two: The Poor and The Rich. They are ruled by the oppressive and secretive ‘Sector’ who have a law to send people’s worst fears to their houses to torture and slaughter them if they have committed a crime. These executions are plastered over television programmes and films, however, the media-hungry society see this only as fiction. A group intent on watching The Sector crumble begin to make their move.
