Other Worlds Austin Hosts the Texas Premiere of CAPSULE

Other Worlds Austin - CAPSULE


capsule-otherworldsaustin-02As part of its Orbiter Year-Round Series, Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival is excited to present the Texas premiere of the SciFi thriller CAPSULE on Wednesday, September 21 (9:00pm) at Flix Brewhouse. Writer/Director Andrew Martin and Producer Paul Forrest will do a Q&A via Skype after the screening.

In the award-winning film set in the cold war, a dysfunctional space capsule orbits the earth, losing oxygen, with a helpless British astronaut suffering Hypoxia locked inside. With limited contact from his own team, he must turn to the deeply suspicious Russians and Americans for help, nations who don’t even know he’s up there.

One Man, One Mission, One Choice… Who will he Trust?

“I caught this film at its World Premiere at SciFi London,” says Bears Fonté, OWA Founder and Artistic Director, “where it played to a sold out house and an endless standing ovation. I had to bring it to Austin. I love it because it has all the danger and tension of something like GRAVITY, but its fifty years earlier so the technology just barely works. Plus no one knows anything yet. This is the earliest days of the Space Race. Add to that the political intrigue of the Cold War and you have a great backdrop for a film.”

Interested in attending the premiere this Wednesday? Tickets can be purchased via Flix Brewhouse.
