Fans of metaphysical sci-fi will want to check out our exclusive clip from Ellipse embedded at the top of the article. A stranded astronaut is haunted by vivid nightmares of the life he left behind. Look for the film, directed by Joe Bland and Grant Martin, on Digital and DVD November 5th via Bland Productions.
Check out the film’s trailer and synopsis below.
When a man has lost everything, it’s easy to self-destruct. Alcohol, silence, and self-loathing help to speed up the process, however, life must go on… Our story finds us during a typical work day for an intergalactic military surveyor and his canine partner on a solo fight near an undefined, oval-shaped planet. Because of his self-destructive coping methods, a simple fly-by soon turns into an emergency crash landing… leaving a man and his dog in dire straits. It soon becomes apparent that because the planet is elliptical in shape and has no fixed axis, the crew can forget everything they know about weather patterns, gravity, and time. Stranded and stripped of the chemicals to feed his addiction, a man and his dog must face an unforgiving planet with impending death lurking all around them. Through it all, the captain’s painful memories and haunting dreams of his deceased fiancé resonate through his mind, forcing the captain to face the person he fears the most… himself.
Josiah Authier and Grant Martin star in Ellipse.
