A feature film entirely written and shot during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. Co-written and produced by Fizz and Ginger Films, Matthew Butler-Hart directed and shot the film. Tori Butler-Hart stars in it with Conleth Hill and Ian McKellen in roles which were shot remotely in their own homes.
INFINITUM: SUBJECT UNKNOWN is a companion film to the TV series INFINITUM that is currently in development and the Graphic Novel which is due to be published next year.
Jane (Tori Butler-Hart) wakes up in a strange attic, bound and tied to a chair, she has no idea where she is or who she is. As panic sets in, she sees a violent bright light flash in front of her eyes and once again she wakes up; same situation as before, an exact repeat.
Voices bleed in from another time and place, giving Jane clues to what might be happening to her. She escapes and embarks on a journey through an empty parallel world leading her to a Quantum science research laboratory in the middle of nowhere. There she discovers tapes from Dr Charles Marland-White (Ian McKellen) and Professor Aaron Ostergaard (Conleth Hill) and their experiment involving human test subjects.
Destined to repeat forever...
the test is to find a way out.
Janus Film Review
"Matthew Butler-Hart wields his Apple-stamped lens with genuine skill, and in the process displays a zest for storytelling that shames a dozen Hollywood hire-a-hack mercenaries."
Released on VOD in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand March 2021, then theatrically and on VOD across North America August 2021.
"Uttering few words, Butler-Hart delivers a powerful virtuoso performance as she conveys, with great conviction, Jane's confusion, fear and frustration...it is Butler-Hat who keeps you invested throughout this film that keeps you guessing until the final frame."
"This is (Tori) Butler-Hart's show from beginning to end."
The New York Times
"This really watchable film has the spirit of early Roger Corman."
Films In Town
"Destined to be one of the great films of the Covid era which will represent the best of film art that emerged."
"During the lockdown, many people tried to find new ways of working and being creative. None of them have quite hit the heights managed by Infinitum: Subject Unknown."
