In the grand tradition of tough boarding school movies (School Ties, anyone?) comes the science fiction thriller Level 16, written and directed by Danishka Esterhazy.

Sixteen-year-old Vivien (Katie Douglas) is trapped in The Vestalis Academy, a prison-like boarding school, keeping to herself and sticking her neck out for no one. That all changes when she is reunited with Sophia (Celina Martin) — the former friend who betrayed her. Together the girls embark on a dangerous search to uncover the horrifying truth behind their imprisonment. Soon running for their lives, the girls must save themselves or die trying.

The 2018 Canadian production rolled about to genre festivals last year, where it drew comparisons to The Handmaid’s Tale.
