About The Film
 
Notes from the New World is a contemporary retelling of Dostoyevsky's Notes from the Underground. The story unfolds in Los Angeles where dreams and harsh realities collide. It's a place where almost everyone spies on everyone else, and everyone seems to be playing a dangerous game. Steven is torn between the loves of two women, each of them pretending to be somebody she's not. The danger escalates when he comes face to face with the Russian Mafia.

Soon Steven will discover who he really is. On another level the story suggests a provocative reading of the state of the postmodern/post-communist world. Are we witnessing the realization of Dostoyevsky's prophecies -- especially as far as the Underground Man's dilemma regarding Love/Terrorism is concerned?. Notes From The New World represents the second chapter of our ambitious Dostoyevsky-LA Project. The first chapter of the project, Shades of Day, inspired by one of the greatest love stories ever written, White Nights, was selected by the Rutgers University professor Gerald Pirog for his course in cinema, along with works by Bernardo Bertolucci, Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader, Akira Kurosava and Josef von Sternberg, among others  (www.shadesofday.com/critics.htm)
