PIG is a mind-bending sci-fi thriller in the tradition of Memento, “a riveting adventure of confusion and identity” (Cleveland Plain-Dealer). The Desert Star Weekly called it “a brilliant sci-fi thriller…the most provocative film I saw at the Palm Springs Int’l. Film Festival.” “An impeccably crafted indie gem that genre fans need to see” (CultCuts Magazine). The film was inspired by Ray Kurzweil’s book The Singularity Is Near.
A man (Rudolf Martin, NCIS) wakes up alone in the desert with a black hood over his head and his hands tied behind his back. He has no idea who he is or how he got there. The only clue to his identity is a name written down in his pocket, leading him to Los Angeles. The more he discovers about his past, the less he understands, until he stumbles upon something bigger and more unusual than he could have ever imagined.
