SlaveCity - Origins


Modern slave colonies, they exist everywhere. There are SlaveZones, where hookers and illegal workers live together with refugees and imported cheap working force. But slaves live everywhere, some of them simply earn more. SlaveCity is where people surrender their freedom for money, status, excitement, cheap thrills and easy sex.

Origins
We started SlaveCity as a semi-documentary project, combining video and animation. First we took a camera to the obvious place – the old central station of Tel-Aviv where chinese, that seems like a slave planet. Afterwords we broaded the shooting to different cities and industrial zones, understanding it all part of one big structure.

Characters
Dan: The hero of SlaveCity is a young writer. He rents in SlaveZone, the cheaper part of town. Sure, he's looking for excitement and sex, but doubts the need to sell his freedom.

New Characters (Season 2):

Steve: Dan's father, rich and annoying inventor. Owner of tech firm Nude.com
