Genocidal Organ

Based on the captivating sci-fi novel by influential writer and essayist Project Itoh

“Writer/director Shûkô Murase has an absolute visual stunner on his hands here” - Nerdist

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

In Genocidal Organ, developed countries rely on advanced surveillance to free them from the threat of terrorism, while other nations are plagued by genocide within their own borders. Strangely, a series of massacres all link back to one American by the name of John Paul. Special agent Clavis Shepherd is sent to capture the target, but nothing can prepare this soldier — or the world — for the truth behind humanity’s darkness.

Genocidal Organ is a foreboding and introspective look at a post-9/11 future, that explores freedom, security and a bizarre shift in terrorism throughout the world.
