Yes, you read that right.
Interpreter Gaia (Francesca Cuttica) is offered a fortune by security forces to use her Chinese-language skills on a very special, highly secretive job. Her curiosity means she accepts and after being escorted to a secret location in Rome, she is locked inside a pitch-black room under the watchful eye of the domineering Inspector Curti (Ennio Fantastichini, Loose Cannons) where she is asked to interpret the harsh interrogation of the eponymous ‘Wang’. But who exactly is the mysterious visitor and what does he want? Gaia uncovers some startling truths that not only jeopardise her position but could also threaten the future of Earth itself.
You’ve been waiting all these months and now he’s finally here! But will you let him phone home? Inspired by cult Sci-Fi TV classics such as The Twilight Zone, V, and The X Files, and with a touch of The Man Who Fell To Earth and The Day The Earth Stood Still, Marco and Antonio Manetti’s The Arrival Of Wang takes refreshing new look at the genre, building intrigue and tension that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s also a psychological drama that questions our conflicting attitudes towards trust, prejudice and xenophobia. The brothers have gained international acclaim as the rising starts of Italian genre cinema with films such as Zora the Vampire and Paura 3-D, which also stars Francesca Cuttica. Having won enthusiastic audiences at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival, the whole of the UK is now preparing the welcoming committee for Wang.
