Set in an otherworldly human existence, scientist Sterling Pierce dedicated his life to the quest for immortality, slowly creating the building blocks of a groundbreaking serum named "Divinity." His son, Jaxxon Pierce (Stephen Dorff), now controls and manufactures his father's once-benevolent dream. Society on this barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy of the drug, whose true origins are shrouded in secrecy. Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita, they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality.
“Shot in raw black and white 16mm, Divinity is a unique visual spectacle that subverts the sleek, macho sci-fi action of ‘90s Albert Pyun with a strong dose of gender politics and an experimental, industrial sensibility. Punctuated by a pulsating soundtrack from DJ Muggs [along with frequent David Lynch collaborator, Dean Hurley], and executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, Divinity is a wildly ambitious, lo-fi post-apocalyptic satire.” Lori Donnelly, Fantastic Fest

“Eraserhead meets Frankenstein by way of a perfume ad… the kind of movie that would be projected on the wall at the coolest nightclub where the meanest kids in town go.” Dais Johnston, Inverse
