Black Bag is a VR film by Chinese director Qing Shao that uses abstract metaphor, combined with a unique hand-painted art style, to create an intense high-quality thriller.
In the film, ex-military security guard, Mr.S works for a bank and leads the life of a normal working-class man. He fantasises about a major heist, a dream that becomes reality when he finds and robs a mysterious black leather bag has been deposited into the bank vault. This unchains a series of events that lead Mr.S’ real world to peel away from him, arriving to a personal hell where all his past sins are playing on television screens.
Is this the fantasy of a moral man, or is the heist real?
