After his return to filmmaking with last year’s Logan Lucky, it appears Steven Soderbergh‘s next big-screen project will be horror film Unsane. The story follows a young woman being harassed by a digital stalker, which leads her to be institutionalized when confronting law enforcement for help. The movie draws parallels to the current social #MeToo movement in the sense that the plot follows a woman who says a man is abusing her, but is written off as delusional.

The film was shot entirely on an iPhone, which Soderbergh hailed as the future of filmmaking in a recent interview at the Sundance Film Festival: “Anybody going to see this movie who has no idea of the backstory to the production will have no idea this was shot on the phone, that’s not part of the conceit.” The grainy visual quality produced by the iPhone lends itself to the overall mise-en-scène of the film: “I look at this as potentially one of the most liberating experiences that I’ve ever had as a filmmaker.”

Check out the footage in the trailer above and share your thoughts in the comments below. Catch Unsane in theaters come March 23.

In other Sundance news, Assassination Nation made waves during the festival, and deals with similar themes to those in Unsane.
