Take a terrifying journey into the human mind with Minor Premise now out in select theaters and on digital and On Demand.
Starring Sathya Sridharan, Paton Ashbrook, and Dana Ashbrook, the 100% certified fresh film was directed by Eric Schultz and written by Justin Moretto, Eric Schultz, and Thomas Torrey.
Attempting to surpass his father’s legacy and pressured by an old colleague (Dana Ashbrook of Twin Peaks), a reclusive neuroscientist becomes entangled in his own risky experiment. Ethan (Sathya Sridharan) has now locked himself in his home with his ex-girlfriend Allie (Paton Ashbrook) and the two navigate trauma, ambition, and missteps of the past. Diving headfirst into the uncharted equations of the brain, they realize that there is more at stake than just their relationship or Ethan’s reputation. With time quickly running out, he is forced to face off against the darker sides of himself while frantically attempting to solve an enigma that lies within his subconscious.
New York filmmaker Eric Schultz makes his feature debut with Minor Premise after having co-produced such acclaimed works as James White, Katie Says Goodbye, and The Strange One. Minor Premise is a brilliantly constructed science-fiction drama that resonates with particular poignancy in our quasi-quarantined times. The film’s pacing is both vibrant and dynamic, stylistically dancing through the inner workings of an individual in a way that is insightful, exciting, and exhilarating. Schultz weaves a web of self-discovery with his characters, revealing a sincere and unvarnished portrait of a young man. Sathya Sridharan’s acting prowess as Ethan makes this film a force to be reckoned with. He is dazzling, demonstrating his range and giving a unique twist to the sci-fi leading man.
