"Fade To Zilch, a Screenplay" - The Venus of Cyrene Meets the Hollywood Casting Couch

Based on the novel, The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch by Konrad Ventana, the drama is a stunning commentary on modernism, existentialism, male egotism, and the emergence of a radical new brand of feminism—the feminist provocateur. Fade to Zilch by F. Lewis Hall, is a story for the ages that lays bare the human heart as it presages current events.

Rising from the rabble of Hollywood stories to challenge the status quo, Fade To Zilch, a screenplay is a powerful contemporary drama, whose time has clearly come.

"No one is innocent … not in this town." Thus, begins a riveting drama that shines a bold and illuminating light into the darkest reaches of the human mind as Fade to Zilch takes readers behind the scenes of the fabulous theatrical world of Hollywood. Revel in this compelling work of social criticism as powerful movie moguls strive to embrace the source of their creativity, while struggling with their own psychological demons. Brimming with sexual intrigue, eye-widening spectacle, and a host of recognizable characters, this unsettling mystery sets a new standard of transcendence in postmodern literary fiction, made more accessible to a general audience through the "perspicuous windows" of cinema and dramatic arts.

Follow the footsteps of Dr. Joseph Metropolis—an unlikely Private Investigator—as he investigates The Lost Love of the Latest Tycoon, examining the provocative role of the muse, the intemperate impulses of the femme fatale, and the atrocious allure of the casting couch, while witnessing the fall of an empire that has become degenerate—devoid of artistic inspiration.

About the Author: 
F. Lewis Hall is an American writer, inventor, and some might say visionary who began his professional career on Sunset Boulevard. His award-winning Post-Lux Trilogy (postmodern, post-enlightenment stories), published under the pseudonym Konrad Ventana, illuminates three vital aspects of artistic creativity.

Encouraged by friends in the movie business to adapt his Hollywood Novel: The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch into a motion picture screenplay, the heart-wrenching drama, Fade to Zilch was painstakingly crafted. Alas, it did not receive a green-light at the time; and yet, it was recently re-discovered by professional book scouts—in light of recent Hollywood scandals and revealing current events.
