Watch Trailer For Low-Fi Genre-Busting Oddity "Reversion"

Indiewire By Tambay A. Obenson | Shadow and Act July 13, 2011 at 6:30AM

The film is called Reversion; directed by Mia Trachinger, it actually debuted 3 years ago, at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, never was acquired for distribution thanks to its low-budget, seemingly genre-bending oddities, and continued to play the festival circuit all over the world, for the next 3 years, hoping to build support for it I suppose.

The film is called Reversion; directed by Mia Trachinger, it actually debuted 3 years ago, at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, never was acquired for distribution thanks to its low-budget, seemingly genre-bending oddities, and continued to play the festival circuit all over the world, for the next 3 years, hoping to build support for it I suppose.

Fast-forward to June of this year, just last month, when the film screened for 1 week in its NYC theatrical premiere, at the Rerun Theater in Brooklyn. I didn't know about it, so I missed the screening, and therefore can't tell you much of anything about it.

However, my fellow Brooklynite over at Filmmaker mag, Brandon Harris has seen the film, and he approves, calling it a "beguiling take on the low-fi, sci-fi dystopia genre... Odd, playful, melancholy and ultimately riveting."

I trust Brandon's instincts, as he and I tend to appreciate similar kinds of films, based on his past reviews, and the conversations we've had; so I'm even more interested in seeing the film myself, and hope I get the opportunity.

And no info on where it's heading to next, if anywhere, and/or a DVD or VOD release.

So what's Reversion about? The short synopsis reads:

In a world in which the past, present, and future unfold simultaneously, REVERSION tells the tale of Eva, a woman desperately trying to avoid a destiny in which she kills Marcus, the man she loves. Part gritty road movie, part lo-fi science fiction, part love story, REVERSION traverses the sprawling landscape of Los Angeles in search of fate, free will, and the nature of morality.

Intrigued? I certainly was and still am when I first read it and saw the above poster art. However, the below trailer just didn't immediately draw me in, and still doesn't, even after repeated viewings. But I'm sure there's a method to the madness.

Regardless, as I already said, I'd like to take a look at the film, because there's enough here that grabbed my attention.

Watch the trailer below (thanks Emmanuel for the tip):
