On October 28, 1943, a U.S. warship in Philadelphia tested electromagnetic invisibility fields to make invisible planes. The U.S. government hired the Navy to partake in this operation. It’s unclear what occurred because none of it happened.

It’s only a theory with a cheesy B-Movie name: the Philadelphia Experiment.

However, in an alternative universe, the Philadelphia Experiment happened. The Naval men aboard the ship created invisible planes. And as a result, the ship’s unit melded with the ship, becoming one being. They became Mischief, a serpent-like creature with a clown face.

Given the accident, the United States spiraled out of control. Major tech companies swooped in and took charge of the country. They then turned the U.S. into a technocracy where tech giants watch your every move.

The United States is a different place in the world of Interface. Created by Justin Tomchuk (U M A M I,) Interface is a 2017–21 24-part animated YouTube series. The parts became a film you can watch on YouTube or own on Blu-Ray or VHS.

Interface takes place in an abstract and experimental animated world. The film looks like a low-budget edutainment…
