Our opening night film is a debut for director Maurice Haeems and stars Henry Ian Cusick (Lost, The 100). It lurks at the edge of fringe science and nods toward the issues raised by Mary Shelley 200 years - do you want to live forever? A brilliant but disturbed scientist freezes his children alive, while he races to cure their deadly genetic disease by decoding the DNA of the immortal Turritopsis jellyfish.
Dark and disturbing, this is a fabulous film with some great twists and turns. We are delighted to have cast & crew to discuss the production. We are also joined by a leading biochemist, who will give us some insight into the science in the film and where we are right now!
A new and tenacious corporation, the S.E.A., has implemented a police state in North America. Uniformed, anonymous Preservers of Peace investigate, judge, and sentence people for even the smallest of crimes. Rhett Murphy, a disillusioned, middle-aged man, witnesses first-hand the state’s newest law-enforcement mandate, which decrees citizens as “Defective.” The punishment? Instant public execution at the hands of ruthless enforcers. Finding himself in a precarious life-or-death situation, Rhett decides to flee across state borders to escape the tyranny. After a surprise visit from Jean, his estranged sister, Rhett is forced to flee with a reluctant Jean in tow. With the state in close pursuit, Rhett and Jean are caught between an underground network of revolutionaries—who work covertly to tear down the militant government before it can spread through the nation— and the growing power of a corporation that is subduing its people under its militaristic control

The year is 2078 and the Earth's energy sources are exhausted. Nuclear and renewables can't cope with demand. Meanwhile, Coltan, a new power source has been discovered on Mercury and mining has started, run by a multinational conglomerate. Helena captain's a ship returning from the mines, it should be routine but things on-board are not what they seem. This Spanish film swims in the memories of many a great 'space' movie. At times gory and chilling, the modest budget they had doesn't show. We love a space/slasher - this is a solid example.
Directed by Brett Ryan Bonowicz (The Perfect 46, 2014), Closer Than We Think is an eponymous documentary about a mid–20th-century comic strip and its creator, Arthur Radebaugh. The film provides important insight into what made the comic a foundation for other popular science fiction endeavors. More important, however, it shows how the strip directly encouraged nascent engineers and scientists to actualize the future described therein. The film also contains interviews with the legendary Syd Mead. A must for everyone but certainly for those into futurism, tech, design, advertising and nostalgic view of the future.
