Utopia has today unveiled the official trailer and poster art for Eric Schultz’s striking feature debut feature, the sci-fi mind-bender Minor Premise, ahead of its December release.
Minor Premise hits select theaters, virtual cinemas, and Digital & On Demand December 4th, 2020.
In the film...
"Attempting to surpass his father's legacy and pressured by an old colleague (Dana Ashbrook of "Twin Peaks"), a reclusive neuroscientist becomes entangled in his own risky experiment."
"Ethan (Sathya Sridharan) has now locked himself in his home with his ex-girlfriend Allie (Paton Ashbrook) and the two navigate trauma, ambition, and missteps of the past. Diving headfirst into the uncharted equations of the brain, they realize that there is more at stake than just their relationship or Ethan’s reputation. With time quickly running out, he is forced to face off against the darker sides of himself while frantically attempting to solve an enigma that lies within his subconscious."
The film has been hailed as "a mind-bending sci-fi drama in the vein of Primer and The Endless."
Schultz co-wrote Minor Premise with Justin Moretto and Thomas Torrey.
"Minor Premise is a brilliantly constructed science-fiction drama that resonates with particular poignancy in our quasi-quarantined times," the press release explains. "Minor Premise’s pacing is both vibrant and dynamic, stylistically dancing through the inner workings of an individual in a way that is insightful, exciting and exhilarating. Schultz weaves a web of self-discovery with his characters revealing sincere and unvarnished portrait of a young man. Sathya Sridharan’s acting prowess as Ethan makes this film a force to be reckoned with. He is dazzling, demonstrating his range and giving a unique twist to the sci-fi leading man."
