In the near future, technology firm Red-Eye is on the verge of developing a revolutionary contact lens that records human sight to replicate memories. The device uses an artificially engineered intelligence known as U.R.M. When the company’s lead researcher is strangely murdered at the time of the technology’s release, Thomas Elliot (Bryk), an old-fashioned police detective investigates with intrepid researcher Margo Elson (Pirie) who are drawn into searching deeper to apprehend the illusive digital shapeshifter. Both soon are terrifyingly threatened by memories of their past the deeper they continue to seek in uncovering what this dangerous artificial intelligence is trying to consume. Parallel Minds is a captivating Indigenous futurist tale.


La société technologique Red-Eye s’affaire à mettre au point des verres de contact qui enregistreront tout ce que voit l’être humain afin de reproduire les souvenirs. Ce dispositif fait appel à l’intelligence créée artificiellement, un processus appelé U.R.M. Puis, tout juste au moment où l’on s’apprêtait à lancer cette nouvelle technologie, le chercheur principal de la compagnie est assassiné. Thomas Elliot, un détective vieux jeu, enquête en compagnie de l’intrépide Margo Elson. Alors que la recherche du ou des coupables progresse, les deux enquêteurs commencent à être très ébranlés et menacés par des souvenirs de leur passé. Parallel Minds, un conte futuriste fascinant, est le deuxième long métrage de Benjamin Ross Hayden (The Northlander, 2016).
