The message of this film is to stand for what’s right and help build up the community and are accepting all applications for those wanting to participate in supporting the cause.
The Oranges’ is a timely sci-fi thriller set in a not so distant future of 2040 in which all American’s are connected electronically through an implanted biomedical eye device. America has evolved into a totalitarian regime centered in Philadelphia, PA where the iVue Corporation and Office of Civil Disobedience control and monitor America through the device. Citizens live in an augmented reality, law abiding citizens right eye glows blue, if citizens break the law their eye device turns orange.
Our story centers around, Riley Summers, the engineer and computer programmer who created the device. In this world people have forfeited their privacy for a sense of safety. Despite his intellectual prowess Riley lives an empty life searching for meaning while still mourning his wife and daughter. This very human story of a man seeking purpose is upended by brutal attacks on his city municipality. When the government turns against its once esteemed designer Riley must choose sides.
Luna, the little girl who lives next door to Riley represents the innocence of this society. Gable, the leader of the dissidents, has an underlying philosophy that no man is free while under constant surveillance. The Oranges is set is a futuristic world where technology accelerates human issues rather than reduces them. The “Big Question” that The Oranges asks is, how much of our personal freedoms are we willing to give up for safety, prosperity and/or the status quo?
