Behind the Scenes
Unremembered (Indie Fest and Accolade award winner, feature film) is a complex thriller told in non-linear time about a man who has no past. This independent sci fi film follows the alternate reality journey of John Outis (Tim Delaney, Indie Fest award winner, lead actor) over sixteen days as he tries to restore his fractured life history. But the more his dark past comes into focus, the more the lives of his friends, his wife, and his lover are altered.
As his past threatens to end his future, he turns to Tina Plantes (Karla Mason), a brilliant and unconventional physics professor. Drawn deeper into the bizarre events of John’s life, she discovers a disturbing and far-reaching set of truths about dreams, time, and the power of the human will.
Unremembered is a “sinuous and riveting independent film in the tradition of David Lynch” declares A.G. Nigrin, Executive Director, The Rutgers Film Co-op/ New Jersey Media Arts Center.
Unremembered was made in Portland, Oregon by Greg Kerr for less than $32,000. It features Portland talent with original music by Nan Avant.
Greg Kerr also wrote the screenplay which earned an Indie Fest award for original screenplay.
