SYNOPSIS: Listening brings us a powerful debut from director Khalil Sullins, as it skirts the sci-fi genre with its own unique storytelling approach and bold cinematic style. Many of us have fantasized about having the power to read minds but a dark side looms.
In this psychological thriller, a group of penniless graduate students think they have solved their financial problems when they invent a new technology that allows them to share each otherís thoughts. What they donít realize is that they have opened up a Pandoraís box that will come crashing down on them. As the experiment destroys their relationships and falls into the wrong hands, the audience is presented with a color-saturated vision of a new reality that twists and turns along the way. ĖSam Robotham
