Executive Producers Brian Weiner of IllusionQuest Studios and Stephanie Garvin of ETM Pictures are proud to present a theatrical film using a visually stunning graphic novel approach to one of the greatest stories of all time. In the same manner that Joel Cohen created the highly stylized Tragedy of Macbeth and Baz Luhrmann breathed new life into Romeo + Juliet, Brian Weiner and Corrine Frederick have transformed Othello into a futuristic action/adventure film that Philip K. Dick might have envisioned.
In this world, relationships between human and androids are forbidden. Yet Othello, the greatest android warrior of his era, returns from successful battle to claim Desdemona, the daughter of Brabantio, the scientist/inventor who created him, as Othello’s rightful bride.
Set in the dark, post-viral society of 2067, Descent is a visually arresting cinematic attraction that reflects a similar art direction sensibility to films like 300, Sin City, The Matrix, Total Recall, Bladerunner and Bladerunner 2049.
