Who will survive the attack of the super-intelligent ants in PHASE IV? This Live Sound Cinema presentation will feature a live score by MORRICONE YOUTH.

In the not too distant future, strange goings-on from outer space, known as ‘phases,’ alter the Earth’s entire population of ants. Operating as a kind of hive mind, the ants begin building geometric towers in the Arizona desert and act aggressively towards the humans living there. A team of scientists venture out to investigate the super smart ants, only to discover that the insects have some big plans for mankind and the team unwittingly scored themselves front row seats.

Morricone Youth is a New York City band formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music.

Part of Nitehawk’s ANIMAL ATTACKS! midnite and brunch series.
