Simply put, indie releases tend to be free of some of the internal politics driving the major studio projects. What they lack in marquee names and big budgets they have to make up in sheer moxie, be it a captivating story, smaller performances of its on-screen talent, or the blood and the sweat and the tears of folks who just won't quit until you've seen their film. Yes, they sometimes lack the gloss of a completed project; and I've learned to accept the good and the bad when venturing into the webs they weave.
That said, I can't seem to find much information about Parallel Minds. I happened across its trailer via another website I occasionally frequent. From what I've culled from IMDB.com, this Canadian release has enjoyed thus far only an internet release in its native country along with a few festival appearances. Nominations and wins are shown in the technical categories (a good indicator of quality, though I'm always a bit dubious when there are no acting citations). Also, it's a bit hard to glean all that much from the trailer, except this looks as though it's going to throw mankind's fascination with Artificial Intelligence under the bus once more. Granted, that ain't all that original, but who's to say the storytellers won't do it with some new twist?
In any event, trailer is below. Enjoy it while you can!
