If creating a unified perspective for all humankind can spell the end of violence, conflict, and discrimination, is it worth killing individual thought? Should we fundamentally change the human brain in order to end conflict? In Launch at Paradise, a powerful organization offers its agents “eternal life” in exchange for their brain matter, reorganizing the best content of their minds to create a super intelligence that brings forth an end to war and conflict. They are terrified to learn that they sacrifice their individuality as a result, but is there still an escape for their soul?
Launch at Paradise stars two-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner Catherine Curtin (“Orange is the New Black,” “Stranger Things”) and Obie Award winner Zainab Jah (False Positive, “Deep State”), with Grammy Award nominee James Harkness (Ain’t Too Proud), Lauren Schaffel (“Still Standing”), Patrick Shane (“Homicide City”), and Daniel Mitura (The Hobbyist).
Written by Daniel Mitura and directed by Carrie Ann Quinn, Launch at Paradise features music by Blair Borland, editing by Jonathan Rogers, production design by Kat VanCleave, cinematography by Dominick Sivilli, and costumes by Breton Tyner-Bryan.
