WETWARE tells a story of what happens when new technologies collide with human needs in a changing world precariously close to todays. Set in a time and place where there are tough and tedious jobs no one wants to do. People down on their luck volunteer for genetic modifications to gain the focus, stamina, and synthesized sense of well-being that makes them right for this work. With business booming, programmers at Galapagos Wetware up the stakes by producing high-end prototypes, Jack and Kay, for more sensitive jobs like space travel, counterterrorism, and deep cover espionage. Based on Craig Nova's 2003 novel Wetware, a poetic noir thriller. "I was captivated by Nova's emotionally stranded main characters," said Craven, "and the ways they navigate the cool and transactional world he vividly describes." Director Jay Craven has made ten narrative films, including five pictures based on stories by Howard Frank Mosher. His films have played festivals and special screenings including Sundance, SXSW, American Film Institute, Lincoln Center, The Smithsonian, the Cinematheque Francaise, Cinemateca Nacional de Venezuela, and the Constitutional Court of Johannesburg.
