VIDEO: Hackers And Conspiracies Abound In The Thriller AMERICAN THIEF

Filmed and scripted around true events between 2015-2019, AMERICAN THIEF is a wildly original, fast-paced action/thriller that integrates fictional characters with real events creating an intense tale of dystopian conspiracy that will keep you transfixed as its protagonists become pawns in a plot to derail the 2016 presidential election.

Toncruz, a teenage hacker, wants to avenge his father's murder while fellow-hacker, Diop, wants to fight for justice. Paul, a disgruntled internet vlogger known as "Man in the Van" and Toncruz are contacted by an Unidentified User on the deep web who claims he can provide them with the truth. Meanwhile, an artificial intelligence programmer observes what unfolds as she fails to contain the monster she's created, which all leads up to an astonishing climax on the eve of the election.

Four years in the making but fresher than today, Ken Eisen of the Maine International Film Festival says "American Thief is a wildly original, truly thrilling film that has the immediacy, daring and perspective of only the best cinematic triumphs of recent years."
