Trailer: Mind-Bending THE MANDELA EFFECT to Premiere at Other Worlds Film Festival in Austin on Wednesday
What is the Mandela Effect? According to Wikipedia:
In 2010, a shared false memory phenomenon was dubbed the “Mandela Effect” by self-described “paranormal consultant” Fiona Broome, in reference to a false memory she reported of the death of South African leader Nelson Mandela in the 1980s (who was at the time still alive), which she claimed was shared by “perhaps thousands” of other people. Other such examples include memories of the Berenstain Bears’ name previously being spelled as Berenstein, and of a 1990s movie Shazaam, starring comedian Sinbad as a genie.
Now, there’s a horror movie based on this phenomenon; give the trailer for The Mandela Effect a spin at the top of the article.
The Mandela Effect is about a man who becomes obsessed with facts and events that have been collectively misremembered by thousands of people. The film will open in LA theaters (and will hit VOD) on Dec 6th, but we’d love for you to be able to check it out at this screening a bit early in celebration of its debut.
Directed by David Guy Levy (Would You Rather), The Mandela Effect will premiere as part of the Other Worlds Film Festival in Austin on Wednesday, October 23rd at the Galaxy Theaters Highland at 7:30 PM.
The Mandela Effect stars Charlie Hofheimer (Escape at Dannemora, Would You Rather), Aleksa Palladino (The Irishman, The Loudest Voice), Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham, You, Would You Rather), Madeleine McGraw (Toy Story 4, Ant-Man and the Wasp), and Clarke Peters (His Dark Materials, The Wire).
