Sometimes the scientists need to leave things alone.

In A Black Rift Begins to Yawn, the film blends the reality and dream state of two women investigating an audio recording. Unbeknownst to the women, their concept of time and state of mind enter a confusing point of no return as they question their reality, identity, and location.

The film stars Sara Lynch and Saratops McDonald. Matthew Wade wrote and directed the project.

Here’s the synopsis:

As two former classmates dig into their deceased professor’s set of cassette tapes, which possibly contain recordings of strange signals from beyond the stars, they begin to feel memories, the chronology of time, and their identities slip into obscurity.
