2007 Sundance film "Dark Matter" will be released by First Independent Pictures this April, the company announced recently. The drama is the feature film debut of opera and theater director Chen Shi-Zheng and stars Liu Ye, Aidan Quinn, and Meryl Streep. The film delves into the world of a brilliant Chinese cosmology student pursuing a Ph.D. in the United States. Driven by ambition, yet unable to navigate academic politics, he is inexorably pushed to the margins of American life. [Brian Brooks]
