OCCUPANTS Feature Film Screening
Directed by Russ Emanuel
Lead Cast: Robert Picardo, Briana White, Michael Pugliese
USA / 2015 / 81mins

'Occupants' is a film about Annie Curtis, an award-winning documentarian and her husband Neil. Annie and Neil embark on a '30 Days of Clean Living' documentary, setting up cameras all over their house to document, via the Internet, their new eating habits. By doing so, half of their cameras capture a parallel version of themselves -a version thatultimately unravels and threatens their very existence.

One morning, Annie settles in to watch her initial footage. She becomes clearly unnerved by what she sees: It's her and Neil, sitting in what appears to be their living room -only it isn't them. Theyre two different people existing in a parallel universe -and, unlike the wedded bliss she shares with her own Neil, the couple in the video are clearly unhappy-most notably with each other.

Things become more stressful when Annie and Neil discover that their "parallels" are contemplating murder... and that a worm hole is slowly opening that'll soon connect their two worlds. They desperately seek help from a former professor of Annie's, in the hope they can "close" their universe to the two who now threaten them -as well as the life of their yet unborn child.
