“The Unseen” follows Bob Longmore (Aden Young), a man who abruptly left his wife Darlene (Camille Sullivan) and daughter Eva (Julia Sarah Stone) and isolated himself in a small Northern town. He works at a saw mill and mostly keeps to himself, avoiding human interaction if at all possible. Bob abandons his family because of his unique condition: He’s slowly going invisible, in an irregular and shocking way. When Darlene reaches out to him, Bob returns home to reconnect with Eva, but as soon as he returns, Eva mysteriously goes missing. Now, it’s up to Bob to risk discovery and the life he’s created for himself in order to find the daughter he loves. Watch a trailer for the film below.
The film is the feature-length debut from makeup effects artist Geoff Redknap. His previous credits include “Watchmen,” “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “Fringe,” “The X-Files,” and most recently “Deadpool” and the upcoming “Star Trek Beyond.” Meanwhile, the film’s star Aden Young is best known for playing the lead role of Daniel Holden in the acclaimed SundanceTV series “Rectify,” about a man who returns to his Georgia home after spending 19 years on death row for a crime he didn’t commit.
“The Unseen” will premiere at the 2016 Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal.
