Watch: Impressive, Surreal Time Travel Short Film 'Therefore I Am'
"I'm not here to amend my own life in some way, I've made peace with all my failures…" Get ready for a mindf*ck with this one. There's a cool short film we highly recommend watching called Therefore I Am, a sci-fi psychological thriller from the McCoubrey Brothers - the same guys who made that dark comedy The Grey Matter. The film is set around a conversation between a man and someone claiming to be himself from the future, but everything changes with every word spoken. It is a "a time travel story", but not in the way you think. It reminds me a bit of that short Interview With a Time Traveler, but even more intelligent.
Description from Vimeo: "A mysterious encounter between a man who claims to be from the future and the man that he claims is his former self. A surreal psychological thriller about loss and regret. All set within the framework of a time travel story that loosely operates in accordance to the paradox-less MWI (many-worlds interpretation) in quantum mechanics." Starring JD Taylor and Kevin Breznahan. Therefore I Am is directed by Peter and Luke McCoubrey, or The McCoubrey Brothers (website), the same filmmakers behind that dark comedy last year The Grey Matter. The film is showing at the Nitehawk Shorts Festival. Thoughts?
