THE FATES

The CX35 team of the "Italian Thanatocratic Society" is transferred to a new city. Their purpose is to end the lives of mortals by severing the threads of fate and recording their death following a strict bureaucracy made of predictions and calculations of a computer that seems to have premonitory powers. In the team, however, there are those who do not let themselves be carried away by blind faith and try to refute the Thanatocratic principles in every possible way. Can bureaucracy be mistaken for religion? What kind of system really regulates life and death?

Director Biography - Flavio Mastrillo

ITA BIO
Nato spontaneamente in una risaia liquamosa, viene trasportato da uno sciame di zanzare fin sulla terra ferma del vercellese nel 1994. Regista, fumettista e musicista col gusto per tutto ciò che è ignoto. Vive a Torino dove, nel 2014, è cofondatore della “Deformazione Professionale”, una compagnia cinematografica indipendente che crea corti e lungometraggi puntando a generi, estetiche e tematiche deformi e ignote. Dopo una lunga formazione artistica, Flavio Mastrillo diventa "Nalsco" all’inizio del 2016 e pubblica i suoi fumetti dal 2017 con svariate case editrici. Ogni idea nuova che genera deve prendere forma su carta o su schermo per evitare che marcisca all'interno del suo cervello.
