PROSPECT First Look: Hotly Anticipated Sci-Fi Thriller to Debut at SXSW

By Christopher Webster [02.06.18]

In the upcoming sci-fi thriller, Prospect, a teenage girl and her father travel to a remote moon on the hunt for elusive riches. But there are others roving the moon's toxic forest and the job quickly devolves into a desperate fight to escape.

Co-directed by Zeek Earl & Chris Caldwell, Prospect is based on their short film of the same name which premiered at SXSW in 2014 and went on to wow the internet.

That fact that they managed to turn it into a feature that will now have it's debut at SXSW 2018, is something of a coming home for the young filmmakers.

A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive.

Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.

Prospect stars Jay Duplass, Sophie Thatcher, Pedro Pascal, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand and Anwan Glover.

The film was produced by Andrew Miano, Chris Weitz, Scott Glassgold, Dan Balgoyen, Garrick Dion and Matthias Mellinghaus.
