Axiomatic


Starring /

In the near future – nanotechnology exists that can alter your beliefs for a predetermined period of time. Marissa Carver, a non-violent pacifist seeks to avenge the death of her wife by using an Axiomatic device that suspends her moral convictions allowing her to exact revenge on her wife’s killer.

Director’s Notes:

This is my lo-fi/sci-fi take on Australian author Greg Egan’s short story ‘Axiomatic’. There will be some Greg Egan fans that notice huge differences in this film compared to the original story namely; Mark Carver is now Marissa Carver and the fact that Amy appears and is an essential character.

The reason for this was that I wanted to focus on the potential their relationship held, taking a chance in exploring those intimate moments between two people deeply in love who are building a life together, and then the aftermath from the choices made when that love is taken away. And I just thought it would be great to have a strong female in the lead roll.

A huge thank you to Greg Egan for not placing restrictions of any kind on this project which allowed me total creative freedom to make a film that I’m very proud of. I hope you enjoy it.
