As part of its Orbiter Year-Round Series, Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival is excited to present the Texas premiere of the SciFi space drama TELEIOS on Wednesday, April 19 (7:30pm) at Flix Brewhouse. Writer/Director Ian Truitner will be in attendance and will do a Q&A after the screening.
In the award-winning film, a deep space mining vessel has been adrift for two years. It is suspected the crew brutally killed each other, but the reason for the bloodbath is unknown. A rescue crew made of genetically modified "perfect" humans is sent to find if there are any survivors, what happened and why.
"TELEIOS is classic SciFi, journeying out into the unknown in search of answers,” says Bears Fonté, OWA Founder and Artistic Director. “In the tradition of EVENT HORIZON, Ian Truitner's film gives us a mission that has already failed, and a new crew ready to pick up where they left off... space is a dangerous place, the further we get out, the more dangerous it becomes."
In the film, five genetically engineered “perfect” humans are sent on a rescue mission to Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, where only one man has survived a ruined expedition to retrieve a vital cargo. Under the stress of isolation in outer space, the five perfect humans begin to exhibit formerly-concealed character flaws that threaten to tear the mission (and their chances for survival) apart.
Peter Hopkins of Video Vault call Teleios,"A film that is stunning to watch and gives viewers a spectacle that will keep them thinking throughout." Horror Buzz says Trauitner’s film is "A glossy, eye-popping action adventurer with a stellar cast.” Flickering Myth remarks "Reminiscent of an episode of Star Trek or 2001: A Space Odyssey... you feel completely immersed in this futuristic world.” And Chris Mahon of Outer Places says "TELEIOS goes the extra mile by being a thought-provoking piece of sci-fi.”
