Mute Date (2019)

MUTE DATE (2019, 81 min.) takes place in the year 2020 and is the story of two people going on a blind date in order to beta test a groundbreaking new technology that enables them to communicate telepathically. Over the course of the date, their bizarre experiences with the product force them to contemplate the future that they, and humanity, are about to enter.

The film stars standup comedian Anthony Kapfer (Noah) and up-and-coming actress Nina Tandilashvili (Erica) as the date-goers. Their palpable on-screen chemistry and delightful back-and-forths are can't-miss—Cody Clarke's trademark witty-yet-natural dialogue absolutely sings through their clever, nuanced performances.

At times heady and at times light, Mute Date expertly rides the line between drama and comedy and is a well-made PB&J sandwich of both. This timely, thought-provoking, snappy science fiction film is sure to appeal to fans of The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, as well as classic comedies such as Defending Your Life and Sleeper.

With sumptuous visuals and clever sound design, Cody Clarke shows the world that ultra micro budget films don't need to look, sound, or feel cheap. Whether you're new to his work or already a rabid fan, it will be hard for you to believe that a film this magnificent was made for less than $500!

Mute Date will be released on Amazon Prime, DVD, and Blu-Ray in early 2019.

Unrated. Contains adult language and adult themes.
