BLACK 2 SUGARS. A coffee between two ghost agents, up until now, working in isolation, ignites a deep soul connection. Alas, they uncover a conspiracy, involving the artificial intelligence which they both serve, which threatens the very code they need to survive.

Shot in 3 days, completed in 3 months, BLACK 2 SUGARS was made for £1750, low, even by short film standards. It was especially ambitious, (and preposterous!) for a multi locational, head twister thriller. The result is a densely plotted spy satire, a one-off, 14 minute crazy helix ride, of cut offs, impossible decisions and complex intel, sparking from just one cup of coffee.
Director, Jane Alexandra Foster comments:
BLACK 2 SUGARS attracted me because of its crazy concept - It’s like a homage to every convoluted spy thriller feature film you’ve ever seen, crammed into 13 minutes of almost incomprehensible fun. Yet there are threads in the story, which like a Rubik’s cube, only work after a few attempts to decipher, as indeed they only did me, whilst in a second edit. Also a star-crossed love story, ‘Black 2 Sugars offers a glimpse into a world of mastermind intelligence, all about possibilities, permutations and computations.’
‘Atmospheric and so well put together, with so many different elements.’ (Felicity Jurd, actress).
‘BLACK 2 SUGARS was a brilliantly unexpected and clever little piece. Jane managed to weave a very intricate story in a short space of time.’ (Angela Peters, actress and head of Actors Tweet up UK).
