KENNETH MADER’S SCI-FI THRILLER ‘DISPLACEMENT’ OPENS IN LOS ANGELES APRIL 28, DAY & DATE WITH VOD
CHICAGO & DALLAS THEATRICAL PLAY DATES TO FOLLOW
Los Angeles, CA, March 22, 2017— Arcadia Releasing Group today announced that it will release writer/director Kenneth Mader’s award-winning sci-fi thriller DISPLACEMENT for an exclusive LA theatrical run at Laemmle’s Monica Film Center as well as on VOD April 28th, followed by play dates in Chicago and Dallas. VOD platforms include: Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Google Play, and the DVD will be available for rental from Family Video in May. Further DVD/BD release to follow.
DISPLACEMENT stars Method Fest and Telly Award Winner and Young Artist Award Nominee Courtney Hope (“The Bold and the Beautiful”, “Transparent”) alongside Academy Award® Nominee and Golden Globe® Winner Bruce Davison (X-Men, Longtime Companion), Golden Globe® Winner Susan Blakely (“Rich Man, Poor Man”, “This is Us”), Sarah Douglas (Superman, Superman II), Lou Richards (“Mad Men”, “How To Get Away With Murder”) and Christopher Backus (“Bosch”, “Rodies”).
“The response to the film at festivals around the country has been great,” said Mader, “and I’m thrilled to be able to bring it to theatrical audiences in L.A., Dallas and especially my hometown of Chicago!”
Have you ever wanted a second chance? To give someone a gift you weren't able to give? Tell them you loved them one last time? These are the questions at the heart of DISPLACEMENT, a character-driven time travel story that explores themes of love and loss, the power of forgiveness, and the consequences of turning back the clock.
All of this within the context of a mind-bending mystery thriller that follows brilliant young physics student Cassie Sinclair (Hope) as she attempts to solve the murder of her boyfriend Brian (Backus) while battling memory loss, mysterious pursuers and severe physical distress caused by a quantum entanglement event.
Grieving over the death of her mother (Blakely) to cancer, Cassie must find a way to reverse the anomaly and solve the mystery of Brian’s death, all while avoiding a shadowy group that is dogging her every move, sending Cassie on a journey that will shake her very core, setting off a chain of events that brings her to the brink of complete emotional and physical collapse.
In order to untangle the anomaly, Cassie seeks counsel from her old physics professor (Davison), encounters her estranged physicist father (Richards) and finds herself being repeatedly interrogated by the mysterious Dr. Miles (Douglas) all of which reveal clues that lead her further down a path toward discovery and potential redemption. But at how steep a price?
