Imagine being the only witness to the murder of a loved one.

Experimental Psychologist, Dr Benedict Miller (Nirav Mehta), is a man tortured by his traumatic youth and the violent death of his wife, Karolin (Daniella Markovic).

In an effort to piece together the events surrounding Karolin’s death, Dr. Miller works on creating a machine that can record dreams that will hopefully piece together the identity of the killer. However the arrival of his first patient, Clementine Jackson (Lauren Orrell), a woman incapable of feeling fear and dangerous to herself and others because of it, hinders his progress.

The arrival of another patient, Bonnie Rose (Ebony Nave), a murderer with increasing homicidal fantasies, gives Miller a unique chance to experiment and improve the machine.

Obsession takes over, as the machine becomes increasingly refined, revealing things much more horrifying than he could ever expect as people’s true nature becomes revealed and people start battling for their lives and liberties.

THE FILM

Conscious is the debut feature from writer/producer, Neeta Gosal and director, Luis Bran.

Fascinated by the idea of a doctor undertaking brutal experiments on patients in an effort to cure their mental illness, Gosal has crafted a chilling story, in the vein of Memento and Shutter Island with the uniquely haunting Australian landscape as a backdrop captured beautiful by cinematographer, Luke Nixon.

The film features a strong, predominately female cast, including Lauren Orrell (Starting From Now, Sleeping Beauty), Daniella Markovic (Radio Treason, Fear of Darkness) and Ebony Nave (500 Miles) with Dr Miller being played by Bollywood actor, Nirav Mehta, in his first Australian film.

COMPLETION

Funds raised will go towards finishing post-production with money needed for the edit, grade, score, mix and marketing.

The score is being composed and recorded by AACTA winner, Michael Lira (The Hunter, Rake, I Love Sarah Jane.).
