Interview with Screenwriters Hank Biro & Kai Biro (Must Escape from the Slaughtercity)

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Hank Biro & Kai Biro: This screenplay is about a future where the majority of people are vegan, and the government are satanists who think the murder of animals and the people they govern is a necessity.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

The genre is sci-fi/horror.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This script should be made into a movie because of its positive vegan message. Our hope is for many people to see the film and consider switching to a vegan lifestyle. It has been proven that the consumption of animals is directly linked to 14 out of 15 of the leading causes of death around the world, and also is the leading cause of global warming.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Evil agriculture.

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Donnie Darko and Fight Club.

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

One year.

7. How many stories have you written?

Five screenplays.

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the
most times in your life?)

My favourite songs currently are: Immaterial by Sophie, Infatuation by Sophie, The Bends by Earl Sweatshirt, and 151 Rum by J.I.D.

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Obstacles we faced would be thinking of new and entertaining action and dialogue for certain scenes among the second half of the script.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I am also passionate about watching movies and TV, and hanging out with my friends and family.

11. You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your
experiences working with the submission platform site?

It is very useful and easy to operate.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings
on the initial feedback you received?

This is our second submission to this festival, and we consider the feedback we received very helpful.

Watch the Screenplay Reading: 

When almost everyone on Earth becomes vegan, the government begins forcing people to use animal products again. Many are imprisoned and turned to plastic, and some go on living for centuries hoping to achieve retribution.
