It’s an invention that will alter the neuroscience landscape to read our minds. And no doubt, the government wants it.

The indie film “Listening” is a great sci-fi thriller from the mind of director Khalil Sullins. It will have its world premiere at the Woodstock Film Festival on October 16 at 9:30 p.m. in the Hudson Valley region.

The cast includes Thomas Stroppel, Artie Ahr, Amber Marie Bollinger, Christine Haeberman, Steve Hanks and Arn Chorn-Pond.

Here’s the film synopsis:

David and Ryan are trying to harness the power of the human mind… and failing. They’re both broke and struggle to support their families, but spend all of their time in a garage-lab full of stolen equipment, hoping that inventing telepathy will solve all their problems. After they meet Jordan, a smart and seductive new classmate, they make a breakthrough that changes everything. But the bleeding-edge technology opens a Pandora’s box of new dangers, as the team discovers that when they open their minds, there is nowhere to hide their thoughts. Secrets and betrayals boil to the surface, and the technology falls into the wrong hands. David, Ryan, and Jordan suddenly find themselves working for an underground government agency with treacherous plans to implement their technology globally. With no one left to trust, David is forced against his friends in a life-or-death battle over not only the privacy of the human mind, but the future of free will itself. 

This is a great on-the-edge of your seat sci-fi thriller and no doubt hopefully it will be showing at more film festivals.
