‘Best of the BFI’s recent films is 'Rose Red’, a high tech sci-fi mystery that addresses anxieties about surveillance, virtual reality, addiction and lethal viruses" Time Out
"It’s imaginative, directed with impressive assurance and pleasingly reminiscent of early Cronenberg.' Time Out


Synopsis
A man's recurring dreams and an investigation into a security breach at a secret Virtual Reality project: Two threads that lead to a disturbing climax.

Statement made for Berlin Film Festival (Film’s Premiere)

This film, co-written with the science fiction novelist Simon Ings, is part of a continuing attempt to create science fiction films that address the current anxieties and obsessions of our society.

ROSE RED is a narrative primarily about guilt, and the desire to transcend human limits, set in a world where technology has become intimate, and sometimes it is hard to see where our machines end and we begin, or where our dreams end and electronic media begin
