Trailers: The Upcoming Sci-Fi Thriller Chimera

This is a trailer for Chimera.

 It was written and directed by Maurice Haeems, and stars Henry Ian Cusick, Jenna Harrison, Karishma Ahluwalia, Erika Ervin, Raviv E. Haeems, Kaavya Jayaram, Jennifer Gjulameti and Kathleen Quinlan. It was produced by Praxis Media Ventures, with Maurice Haeems, Jay Sitaram, and Eric B. Fleischman serving as producers. It will hit the festival circuit in the Spring, followed by a release later in the year. 

 “While our story pushes the central character down some very dark paths, we still wanted the audience to see that despite his many flaws, Quint is always driven by a utopian vision and noble intentions,” says director Maurice Haeems. 

“This film asks difficult philosophical questions like ‘How far would you go to save the ones you love?’ and ‘Without your family, would you still want to live forever?’,” says producer Jay Sitaram. 

Check out the synopsis and trailer below.

“Imagine a world without aging, injury, disease or death. Quint’s obsession with this utopian dream pushes him to the edge of his sanity. Rather than risk losing his dying children, Quint decides to freeze them alive, thereby preserving them in a cryonic ametabolic state. Meanwhile, he feverishly researches genetic modifications that would give them the regenerative abilities of the “immortal” Turritopsis jellyfish. Quint’s experiments require human embryonic stem cells and this sets him on a collision course with his Masterson, a shadowy figure, whose bizarre motives trigger a chain of events with far-reaching consequences.”
