Storyline

DORIS takes a spiritually subversive look at channeling, prophesy, and our current obsession with apocalyptic events, warning the dangers of predicting the future. In this story about an unknown housewife living on the edge of the desert, Doris Stiles involuntarily channels predictions of the end of the world, and becomes an overnight media sensation. She opens her door to true believers and nut cases alike, turning her dysfunctional family inside out for the whole world to see, including an unscrupulous reporter who infiltrates her group and has the tragic secret of his life exposed by this gifted woman. Understanding channeling and other involuntary psychic experiences is what Doris struggles hard to integrate into her life as she walks a virtual tightrope of paranormal experiences in a difficult family situation surrounded by an environment of national and political chaos.

A film I want to watch again, there's something here underlying all of this....
28 November 2012 | by DPnessSee all my reviews

This film made me laugh, it made me cry. It mixes serious events with humor, and comes to an unexpected conclusion. Elise Robertson who plays DORIS is fabulous as she channels personalities, changing like a chameleon before her friends.

All of the characters are interesting and quirky, and I especially liked the appearance of Sean David Morton and Mike Bara in the UFO group scene in the house.

The photography and scenic views are really nice, and so is the lighting. The film has a somewhat meditative pace which makes you think about the deeper aspects of what's going on.

Can't wait for the VOD launch.... It's happening 11:11AM December 21st, 2012, the end of the Mayan Calendar!
