Synchronicity - with Special Guest Ben Lovett
Join composer Ben Lovett for a screening of SYNCHRONICITY to benefit Asheville FM. Ben scored the film in Asheville using vintage analog synthesizers to create the films unmistakable retro sound. Lovett, whose original score has been praised by Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Filmmaker Magazine and many others, will be on hand for an audience Q&A following the screening.
SYNCHRONICITY is a mind-bending Sci-fi Noir in the tradition of Blade Runner, Gattaca and Memento. Daring physicist Jim Beale has invented a machine that can fold space-time and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future, but in order to keep the rights to his invention he must prove that it works by finding the flower's identical match in the present. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his lifes work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.
A new special edition vinyl release of Lovetts soundtrack for the film will be on sale at the theatre all weekend. The album was first released on CD and digital by Lakeshore Records, who teamed with MONDO imprint Death Waltz Records to create the new 180 gram vinyl complete with custom artwork and liner notes from director Jacob Gentry.
