West Coast Premiere
Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead continue to use genre cinema as a tool to create intelligent discourse in their melancholy follow-up to THE ENDLESS.
Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan star as a pair of paramedics who find the world around them engulfed in madness when a new designer drug called Synchronic starts to conquer the streets of New Orleans.
Drawing upon the cinematic history of New Orleans to reinterpret it through their lens, the duo aim for a tone that sits somewhere between neo-realism and science-fiction, which works to load its story with an emotional power rarely created with such mastery.
Mackie and Dornan bring their characters alive with verve and sympathy alongside a heartbreaking score and a vision of the here and now that is sure to haunt viewers long after the film has ended.
A sensitive, thrilling experience that’ll engulf those who take the care to experience it on the big screen, SYNCHRONIC continues to build the legacy of Benson & Moorehead as talent powerhouses whose narrative drive continues to reward loyal viewers.
