The hatch

The Hatch

The Hatch is the film adaptation of the theatrical play by the same name.
It is a low budget film that was shot despite the challenges of the time and has to do with the paranoia of the modern era.
Film Duration 89 Minutes

After a big war, somewhere in the planet, all the big forces have gathered all the toxic remnants of their weapons in a hatch.
The hatch is considered a Pandora's box, which will destroy the world if opened. Three people are called to handle the existence of the hatch, and they learn how powerful they can become by using its influence.

The play is a political and social satire that critisizes the handling of information, the power that stems from fear of an existing or a non-existing problem as well as the power that stems from authenticity.
