There is no doubt that the horrors facing the world right now are creeping into how I am arranging films to tell a story. Sometimes it feels like dystopia has not only begun, but is well underway. I never imagined the extent to which the most bizarre and fringe types of conspiracy theories would join the pandemic in leading this charge toward an uncertain future that is filling so many of us with dread. These films express all of this.

A mysterious notebook and a phone conversation send a reclusive Indian-American neuroscientist down a surreal path of self-discovery.

Most recently, Eric executive produced Rashaad Ernesto Green's coming of age love story, Premature, which premiered at Sundance 2019 and will be released by IFC in fall 2019.
