Stasis from Filmmaker Christian Swegal

Wow you have got to check out this short film from Filmmaker Christian Swegal that I found on IO9 called Stasis. On the surface it appears to be a soldier with a major case of PTSD played by Reshad Strik who is terribly injured on an ice planet must live through the horrific events over and over until he remembers what really happened. His therapist is portrayed by Beau Bridges. It's science fiction thru and thru even if some of the plot lines may have been used before,and nothing is as it first appears, Swegal does a masterful reweaving of the age old questions.

IO9 says that Swegal wrote then saying that Stasis was done almost entirely with volunteer labor and donated props.

Fyi here is the VIMEO link
