The United Kingdom in the near future. Civil war rages, and martial law has been declared by a military government hellbent on squashing the opposition. A woman (Scottish BAFTA nominee Shauna MacDonald, The Descent) wakes up in a blindingly white cuboid cell, where General Zakarian (Oded Fehr) uses increasingly sophisticated and cruel methods to torture her for information – information she claims not to have. As questions of trust are placed both on captor and captive, they find themselves embroiled in an increasingly spiraling journey into the nature of authority.
Tense, shocking, and all-too relevant, WHITE CHAMBER poses the question: can there even be such a thing as certainty in these most uncertain of times?

WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING…
“A time-leaping narrative structure interrogates the viewer’s prejudices, turning the tables on our moral orientation to reveal the double game that almost everyone here is playing. – SIGHT AND SOUND
“Although contained almost entirely within the space of an experimental facility, White Chamber cooks up – in microcosm – a challenging crystallisation of the absurdity and addictiveness of war.” – SCIFINOW
