Director Philip Gelatt will bring author Laird Barron’s 2010 short story, -30-, to the screen as They Remain on March 2nd, in New York (Village East Cinema) and on March 9th, in Los Angeles (Laemmle Music Hall).
They Remain stars William Jackson Harper (Paterson, True Story) and Rebecca Henderson (Mistress America).
The Remain Synopsis:
They Remain explores the evolving relationship between Keith (Harper) and Jessica (Henderson), two scientists who are employed by a vast, impersonal corporation to investigate an unspeakablethat took place at the remote encampment of a mysterious cult. Working and living in a state-of-the-art, high-tech environment that is completely at odds with their surroundings, they spend their days gathering physical evidence, analyzing it, and reporting on their findings.
The intensity of their work, and their extreme isolation, bring the pair closer. But, when Jessica discovers a mysterious artifact of unknown origin, the dynamic between them changes: secrets are kept, sexual tensions arise, and paranoia sets in. Keith begins to have visions and is unable to distinguish whether they are nightmares or hauntings. Having lost all sense of what is real and what is imagined, all he knows is that the horror he and Jessica have been sent to uncover — a horror that could be biological, psychological, or supernatural — now threatens his very survival.
