Gaurav Seth on Doppelgangers in Multiverse [Exclusive Interview]

Multiverse directed by Gaurav Seth

The multiverse may be farfetched. However, the idea of multiple universes and doppelgangers are believed by many as we may not be alone. In the sci-fi film Multiverse, director, and writer Gaurav Seth crafted a thriller that has doppelgangers hunting for themselves for the fight for survival.

The movie stars Paloma Kwiatkowski (Bates Motel), Munro Chambers (Turbo Kid), Robert Naylor (Being Human), Sandra Mae Frank (Soul to Keep), and Marlee Matlin (CODA). Gaurav Seth directed the movie from the script written by Doug Taylor (Splice).

Here is the official synopsis of Multiverse:

Colleagues Loretta, Danny, Amy, and Gerry are on the verge of an amazing breakthrough in quantum physics when tragedy strikes. Racing to complete the experiment, Loretta dies in a fiery car accident. Five months later, as the trio struggles to move on with their lives and the work they’d started, Loretta returns. She’s full of energy, enthusiasm, seemingly unaware she’s been gone for months. Are the friends losing their collective minds or has something remarkable happened? Soon, each of them comes face-to-face with their dead ringer. Professional rivalries and personal relationships surface and the friends realize only one version of them can exist in our reality. A violent correction is necessary to maintain order.
