Anyone witnessing an alien abduction will not be in the right frame of mind for the rest of their lives. In a film, Cosmic Dawn, joining a UFO cult may be more than meets the eye by surrounding one with an unusual outlook.
The film stars Camille Rowe (Knuckledust, The Deep House) as a young woman coaxed into joining a cult. She’ll find that it’s easy to join a cult, but much harder to leave.
It also stars Emmanuelle Chriqui (Wrong Turn, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan), Antonia Zegers (The Club, Secretos en el Jardin), Joshua Burge (The Revenant, Relaxer), and Phil Granger (Maid, Upload). Jefferson Moneo (Big Muddy) directed and wrote the movie.
Here is the official synopsis:
After witnessing alien adduction as a child (and subsequently being told she’s crazy for most of her life) Aurora, now a young woman, joins the UFO cult The Cosmic Dawn after discovering a book written by the group’s leader, Elyse. Aurora’s time at the cult’s remote island compound is marked by miraculous revelations, consciousness-expanding flowers, and a burgeoning friendship with Tom, the resident cook. When a fellow cult member starts to display increasingly bizarre behavior, Aurora begins to question Elyse’s sanity (and her own) and starts looking for a way out.
Years later, after the dissolution of the cult, Aurora has moved on with her life. She leads a quiet and seemingly normal life. But when Elyse resurfaces in a mysterious video, Aurora is forced to confront her past. Together with Tom, she pursues the ultimate truth about The Cosmic Dawn. Does Elyse really have access to another dimension? Or do her prophesies truly point to mass suicide amongst the surviving cult members.
Cosmic Dawn is in select theaters and On Demand on February 11.
