Ashlee Jensen and Terrance Young’s Project Eden: Vol. I will have its world premiere at the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival next month.
Shot across the US, Australia and NZ, Project Eden: Vol. I stars Erick Avari (Stargate, The Mummy, Mr. Deeds), Mike Dopud (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dark Matter), Bruce Bohone (Fargo, Man of Steel), Cliff Simon (Stargate SG-1), Anna McGahan (Underbelly: Razor, House Husbands) and Paul O’Brien (Home & Away).
The thriller follows a young woman who, aided by an ex-military officer, becomes an unwitting fugitive after she discovers her son's catatonic state may be at the heart of a global conspiracy.
“We are thrilled that this film gets to have its world premiere, not only in the United States where this story was first conceived, but at a festival that is said to be the oldest genre festival in the U.S itself," said co-directors Jenson and Young. "It's the perfect market and audience for this film to make its debut and we couldn't be more pleased."
It’s the second feature by the duo and their production company, Mad Anth’m Productions, after their indie 500 Miles.
Young is also the producer of the film, along with Sallyanne Ryan. The DOP is Christopher Lange, and LA-based Instrum International is the international sales agent.
Boston SciFi is an 11-day event running from February 10 to 20. The first nine days consist of a traditional film festival. The fest concludes with The Marathon, a 24-hour screening of classic and new films.
