Closer to God, a very independent sci-fi fright feature won acclaim at festivals last year for its eerie, topical tale of scientific breakthrough and public backlash.
Written and directed by Billy Senese, Closer to God concerns Dr. Victor Reed, a brilliant geneticist who has just achieved a huge scientific breakthrough by successfully cloning the first human being, an adorable baby girl named Elizabeth. This immediately becomes a media spectacle and ignites a firestorm of debate concerning the moral and religious implications of such a discovery. Soon, Dr. Reed and his family lose all sense of privacy and safety as they are swarmed by protesters and the media. Their biggest threat, however, could be Victors own secret.
Uncorkd and Breaking Glass have announced a July 3rd release for Closer to God. The film will VOD platforms, as well as the following theaters across the country: NY – Cinema Village; LA – Laemmle Music Hall; Portland – Clinton Street Theater; San Francisco – Roxie Theater; Philadelphia – The Roxy; Chicago – Facets Cinematheque; Denver – SIE Film Center; Miami – Cinema Paradiso; Dallas – Texas Theater; Cleveland – Capitol Theater.
