Vanishing Waves trailer suggests intelligent science fiction
I like intriguing trailers for small films especially when they promise so much and Vanishing Waves is one of those very trailers. It's for a science fiction film that has been gathering quite the line-up of festival awards from its global travels including the Melies d'Or as the best European genre film of the year at Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival.
The trailer is unusual and doesn't reveal too much but does give you enough to make you curious about what is going to happen, and if you don't get it all from the trailer the blurb that comes with it makes you think of Altered States but with a partner.
The trailer for Vanishing Waves has arrived just before its release in Lithuania, the home country of the co-writer and director Kristina Buozyte, which will be followed by a release in America next year. There is no word yet of a release in the UK.
The article in Twitch also gives us a more descriptive blurb for the film than the short one carried on IMDB:
Have you ever dreamed of being inside the head of another person - a beloved one or your rival ? Have you ever wished to experience the ideal relationship, where two minds come into total fusion? "Vanishing waves" - a sci-fi melodrama. Following solid scientific experiment, based on the neural transfer, a young inhibited man will live an astonishing journey in the comatose woman anonymous mind. This contemporary tale is exploring the nature of desire by exposing links and contradictions between the human body and the mind.
Here's the short blurb for the film:
A neuron-transfer scientist experiments with the thoughts of a comatose young woman.
Here's the trailer for Vanishing Waves which does look interesting and while it may not have you totally hooked, coupled with the above write-ups I think you might be keen to watch it, I know I am.
