Genre: Drama


Synopsis: After discovering the "Big Lie" of his life, a man struggles to cope with the loss of his father, his girlfriend and a hand written manuscript that holds the key to his life's mystery. He creates his own illusionary world so perfectly strong and convincing that others believe it too. This man's journey to redefine his life reflects our maddening needs as human beings to construct our own illusions to find more comfortable realities.


Set against a backdrop of the surrealist paintings of Rene Magritte and the hypnotic music of Patricia Barber, the story unfolds through a complex pattern of non-linear narrative structure to create a layered, temporal composition. By going back and forth in time, the elements of the narrative are gradually revealed and retroactively understood. The story weaves in and out between characters, places and events, building up its thematic unity to provoke the audience to question the supposedly fixed nature of reality, the foundations of relationships, morality, creativity and art.

As the couple banter through a bombed out African landscape, trying to escape the violent surreality of war, they discuss culture, politics and religion while carting a load of stolen art-masterpieces in pursuit of freedom across the border.

Financing projects

We finance our films with funds from private investors and industry sources. Our number one objective is to return money to our financiers. Without doing that we won’t be able to continue making films. As such we thoroughly assess each screenplay property that we intend to produce to identify and quantify the potential audience in all markets around the world and in all forms of media (theaters, DVD, pay cable, broadcast television, etc.) from which we will derive revenue. With this information we can determine a proper budget that can be covered by revenue earned from sale or licensing of the film.
