We are very excited to announce our first Science Fiction film, TERRITORY 8, to the Prairie Lights Film Festival. Here’s some details on the film from lead actor, and Nebraskan native, Michael Tushaus:
World Premiered at the Vegas Indie Film Fest, Las Vegas, NV on May 1st, 2013. Starring Hastings College alum, Michael Tushaus, Territory 8 is an existential thriller set in the not so distant future, where an eight mile quarantine zone in the Nevada Desert, known as Territory 8, is the site of the world’s largest man-made disaster. Shortly after a chemical weapon explosion contaminated the area, two temperamental scientists, each with their own objectives, find themselves in the working on a cure for a biological weapon – that one of them created. As they work, they discover a sinister plot for human experimentation, and a band of hostile survivors who are looking to escape at any cost. They also must contend with the Chinese government, who wants access to the weapon, and has a possible spy in their midst. Now the scientists will have to work together to expose the truth, and stay alive. Territory 8 is a tale of intrigue, suspense, and international mystery, which sheds light on the public’s growing distrust of big industry, and its effects on our environment. This film also involved Nebraskans as supporting roles, camera department, and costume design.
This is a film you will not want to miss!
