FLUIDØ is a cypherpunk movie about VIRUS, SEX, HACK, DRUG & CONSPIRACY. A German production directed by Shu Lea Cheang, the film was premiered in the Panorama section at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival and shown in documenta 14 in 2017. FLUIDØ is set in the post-AIDS future of 2060 when mutated AIDS viruses give birth to ZERO GEN - humans that have genetically evolved in a very unique way. These gender fluid ZERO GENs are the bio-drug carriers whose white fluid is the hypernarcotic for the 21st century, taking over the markets of the 20th century white powder high. A new war on drugs begins and the ZERO GEN are declared illegal. The Government dispatches drug-resistant replicants for round-up arrest missions. When one of these government android's immunity breaks down and its pleasure centers are activated, the story becomes a tangled multi-thread plot and the ZERO GENs are caught among underground drug lords, glitched super agents, a scheming corporation and a corrupt government. FLUIDØ invites the viewers to check in as a fluid junkie for a super hyper viral ride.
