A satirical comedy for the digital age, OMNIPRESENT is a hilarious cautionary tale for anyone tempted to use their devices for a sneaky peak at the private lives of others. Director Djevelekov's obsession with electronic surveillance, first seen in his Internet dating hit LOVE.NET, expands in this timely comedy. Ad agency owner Emil rigs up a spy camera in his invalid dad's living room to catch a thief, presumed to be the caregiver, but the camera proves otherwise. The process is intoxicating, and soon Emil has planted cameras at work and throughout his home, reveling in catching co-workers and friends, his wife, his father-in-law, and more in plans and plots, secret liaisons, betrayals and bad habits. It's the ultimate reality TV until it all goes wrong and Emil's worst nightmare comeuppance goes viral. In Bulgarian with English subtitles. Courtesy of Miramar Film. ProRes digital widescreen. (BS)
