Set in a near future where MRI technology can read your mind, the independently produced feature film Justice Is Mind releases first official trailer. Film scheduled for release in 2013.
Mark Lund executive producer, director and writer, is pleased to announce that the first official trailer for Justice Is Mind has been released. Independently produced with a cast of over eighty in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Justice Is Mind is set in a near future where a new type of MRI process called FVMRI (functional video magnetic resonance imaging) can read your memory in video form.
In Justice Is Mind businessman and restaurant owner Henri Miller has been afflicted with unexplained headaches since childhood that have increased in intensity into adulthood. When he has the new FVMRI procedure and it reveals that he has allegedly shot and killed two people on his property, the trial of the century begins in which Miller is faced with his own memory at trial. But all is not as it seems as a dark family secret held by Henri's minister father Joseph reveals itself during the trial.
Justice Is Mind stars Vernon Aldershoff as Henri Miller, Robin Ann Rapoport as his journalist wife Margaret Miller, Kim Gordon as district attorney Constance Smith and Paul Lussier as Miller's defense counsel. Principal photography wrapped on October 13 and encompassed over fifteen locations. Edited by Jared Skolnick with a score by Daniel Elek-Diamanta and special effects by Adam Starr, the trailer is being released digitally across numerous platforms.
"I could not be more pleased to present the trailer for Justice Is Mind. Not only does the trailer introduce the story to audiences but represents what's truly possible in the world of independent filmmaking when parties on both sides of the camera come together to produce a motion picture," said Lund. "From the scope of our locations to the dedication of all those involved, I believe we have a solid product to present to audiences. I have always enjoyed a good courtroom drama and Justice Is Mind certainly offers that along with a subplot that suggests maybe our memories should remain solely our own."
Lund was inspired to write Justice Is Mind after discovering a 60 Minutes story that discussed 'thought identification' through an fMRI (function MRI) procedure in which a machine can identify objects the human mind is thinking of.
