Sophie Clé (Aja Naomi King)

Reversion, by filmmaker and co-writer Jose Nestor Marquez, questions the nature of identity and our use of technology. It begins with Sophie Clé (Aja Naomi King), who is a voluntary and satisfied user of high-tech jewelry, the Oubli, that lets its wearers re-live their most joyful memories as often as they want and still feel like it is the first time. When a stranger, Isa (Jeanette Samano), kidnaps Sophie, she learns that “you can’t escape what you cannot forget.” Because she is able to relive the last day she saw her other over, and over, Sophie has never moved past it.

Reversion, then, is likely going to deal with her confronting the reality of her mother’s death and learning to grow up–quickly.

It is an interesting question, though: If you could relive your happiest memories over, and over again, would you? It would inevitably be tempting. How much would that block out the painful parts of life? How would basing your life on past happiness affect the present?

Reversion, the second feature film based in Isa premieres October 9, 2015, in select theaters.

REVERSION centers on Sophie Clé (Aja Naomi King), a delighted user of the Oubli, a wisp of high-tech jewelry that wraps behind the ear and uses neuroscience to help its users experience their most joyful memories as if they were happening for the first time. In addition to being the head of marketing for the company that makes this revolutionary memory-enhancing wearable device, she is also the daughter of its inventor, Jack Clé (Colm Feore).

Sophie’s most joyful memory is the last day she saw her mother alive, fifteen years earlier. But on the eve of the Oubli’s worldwide launch, a stranger named Isa (Jeanette Samano) kidnaps Sophie, setting off a chain of events that remind us all, you can’t escape what you can’t forget.

REVERSION is directed and Co-written by Jose Nestor Marquez (Ana Maria in Novela Land) and stars Aja Naomi King (How to Get Away With Murder), Colm Feore (Gotham, The Chronicles of Riddick), Gary Dourdan (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Being Mary Jane) and Jeanette Samano (ISA, Speechless).
