People Like Us releasing feature film The Zone

Vicki Bennett (aka People Like Us) is releasing a feature film titled The Zone, a feature-length dual screen film tracking two journeys from The Wizard Of Oz and Stalker, which "tells one story of two journeys to the promised land, the world where dreams can be made real and reality is like a dream".

Bennett says: "It was initially inspired by the fact that both films start in monotone then switch to colour at the breakthrough point where they cross over to the other side, or The Zone, as it's called in Stalker."

The Zone will be distributed by LUX for screenings at film festivals and galleries in the coming weeks.

UPDATE: The Zone has been withdrawn from circulation following a legal claim by Mosfilm, owners of Stalker. More on that story here.
