The Field of Vision (2011)
“Intelligently conceived and written, excellently cast and acted, this short film is what authors long for but seldom see: a dramatic version of their work that both makes an original interpretation of it and gets right to the heart of it.”
Ursula K. Le Guin
Adapted from the short story by major science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin, THE FIELD OF VISION is about mankind’s pursuit of truth and the consequence of finding the answer. In an unknown future, a group of astronauts unearth evidence of an ancient alien civilization on Mars. Concealed within it is a truth so dangerous it threatens to change the world forever. On their return, a psychiatrist is brought in to assess the surviving crew, all of whom suffer from unexplainable physical disorders. What he discovers will shake his scientific and rational beliefs to the core.
Starring Raji James, George Anton, Leon Ockenden, Rupert Holliday-Evans, Danny Webb, Simon Dutton, James Weber-Brown, Michael Mueller and Charlotte Hayward.
