Following its screening at our Conspiracy event earlier this year, psychological thriller, Transmission has officially been released online. Varun Raman & Tom Hancock who serve as writers and directors of the film describe it as “an abstraction of our fears over the future of post-Brexit Britain and many western countries that are now adopting protectionist and isolationist policies through manipulation and contempt.”
Transmission establishes tension between Dr. Sam (James Hyland) & Leonard (Michael Shon) right from the word go. What we are treated to is an intriguing and warped psychological game of one room cat and mouse for Leonard’s freedom – all with a stylistic nod to Stanley Kubrick. A must watch, but not for the faint-hearted.
Verdict: (5 / 5)
WRITTEN & DIRECTED by Varun Raman & Tom Hancock
PRODUCTION COMPANY: PARALLEL MADNESS
CAST: James Hyland, Michael Shon, Kelby Keenan

Everything changed for Cornelius Walker on 27 November 2000 when Damilola Taylor was killed. Damilola was 11, the same age as Cornelius. He lived five minutes away. He had the same skin colour. Cornelius’s mother, scared for her son’s safety, moved their family out of London. Cornelius suddenly found himself living on a white estate run by racists. But rather than fight them, Cornelius decided to become more like the people who hated him. They became his family and kept him safe. And in return, Cornelius became submerged in a culture of violence and hatred. But as the violence and racism against other black people continued, Cornelius struggled to marry his real identity with the one he had acquired.
