First teaser trailer for the upcoming science fiction thriller THE INCIDENT, written and directed by Isaac Ezban.
SYNOPSIS: Two parallel stories about people trapped in illogical endless spaces: two brothers and a detective locked on an infinite staircase, and a family locked on an infinite road...for over 35 years.
Produced by Yellow Films, Salomon Askenazi, Miriam Mercado, and with Cine Canibal taking care of distribution on Mexican territory, THE INCIDENT features an all-star Mexican cast that includes Raul Mendez (KM 31), Nailea Norvind (THE OTHER FAMILY), Hernan Mendoza (AFTER LUCIA), Humberto Busto (AMORES PERROS), Fernando Alvarez (THE TEARS) and more, and will arrive on Mexican commercial theaters on early 2015.
"Ezban is a thoughtful, resourceful, and adept director. Using a budget that must have been a mere fraction of a fraction of, say, Christopher Nolan’s undue Inception, Ezban takes an infinitely more imaginative and precarious approach, with a far better payoff. While it may not be of the same calibre of Tarkovsky’s Solaris or Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Incident is of the same lineage, and for a first effort, Ezban shows great potential. Ezban’s got a long career ahead of him, and it’s a thrill to see his first flight." - VIVASCENE
"THE INCIDENT is one of the most intriguing Mexican films of the year... one must applaud Ezban and his crew for making an interesting and believable science fiction effort with few resources. THE INCIDENT is bright and concise, perfectly expressing its director's (very human) concerns while also offering an exciting "alternate" world." - TWITCHFILM twitchfilm.com/2014/05/cannes-2014-review-the-incident-el-incidente.html#ixzz3GcNVjHD2
"Think an ultra-dark remake of GROUNDHOG DAY produced by Damon Lindelof and directed by the ghost of Rod Serling, and you’re in the thematic neighborhood" - FANGORIA
"This is essentially the most cinematic and impressive Lost fan film ever made. But every big Lost fan in the world, every Twilight Zone fan, every Kafka fan or fan of surrealism and mystery, needs to see this movie as soon as possible." - HORROR MOVIES UNCUT
"The Incident is a nightmerish thinker. You’ll be stroking your chin over Isaac Ezban’s debut feature long after it’s finished. The scenarios are nightmarishly executed and unfold in ways that allow Ezban to pile on the surreal visual detail. But this crisp little mind-fucker takes a big risk—and succeeds—when everything is explained in a bravura end sequence." - STRAIGHT
"It’s been a while since I’ve witnessed the uncomfortable confusion and frustration that accompany nightmares put to film in such a way. This is Mexican director Isaac Ezban’s first feature film, and I can’t wait to see what he’s got in store next." - THE GUARDIAN (UK)
"The Incident is a beautiful mindfuck. It’s a heart-pounding, frantic and disconcerting journey for audiences and characters alike as the action moves to a conclusion that is both terrifying and strangely hopeful. One of the scariest movies I’ve seen all year. The performances are top-notch and transcend the subtitles". - WESTENDER
