How to fight crime in an high-tech, action packed future? Through a chip that records our entire lives.
2027. A new way to fight crime. Everyone is implanted with a chip that allows to register every single event in people’s lives, allowing SSU, a special surveillance unit, to uncover criminal acts. Directed by Eric Ramberg and Jimmy Eriksson (who also stars in the film as the main officer), Memorize is a film in which science fiction and action blend together and transform into something else. We see a world in which the System has taken over complete control over the citizen’s lives, mainly thanks to advanced technology. The act of recording – or actually, memorizing – is the tangible and and irrefutable proof that any event happened, but it might not be the ultimate solution. In a world where almost everything is filmed, photographed, stored, shared, this film about a not-so-distant-future also acts as reflection on the contemporary. Everything is stored, put in the hands of someone else, privacy is destroyed and an omniscient Big Brother penetrates into our personal memory.
