Shatter Belt

From director James Byrkit (Coherence) comes a collection of stories from the other side of consciousness.

A modern mindbender for a new generation, Shatter Belt dives head first into the deep end of questions about our relationship to reality.

For SXSW, we are premiering episodes 2-4:
• “Immotus” - The crew of a savvy internet news channel faces what appears to be a glitch in the construction of the universe. Naturally, chaos ensues.
• “The Specimen” - Patton Oswalt stars as a man on a last desperate mission to salvage meaning from his life.
• “Pearls” - A night of adventure cuisine triggers unnerving personal revelations by way of bizarre flavor enhancers and mild hallucinogenics.
