Beyond the Black Rainbow

Beyond the Black Rainbow is a 2010 science fiction film written and directed by Panos Cosmatos, his feature film debut. The film stars Michael Rogers as "Dr. Barry Nyle". It was produced and filmed in Vancouver, and premiered at the 2010 Whistler Film Festival. It also showed at several film festivals throughout 2011, including Tribeca in New York City and Fantasia in Montreal. Magnet Releasing, the genre division of Magnolia Pictures, has picked up the film for US theatrical release.

Synopsis: Deep within the mysterious Arboria Institute, a beautiful girl (Eva Allan) is held captive by a scientist, Dr. Barry Nyle (Michael Rogers). Her mind is controlled by a sinister technology (a mysterious diamond-shaped light). Speechlessly, she waits for her next session with the deranged Dr. Nyle. If she hopes to escape, she must escape her cell and the watchful eye for Dr. Nyle peering through video monitors, and a caretaker. She must journey through the darkest reaches of the Institute but Nyle won╩╝t easily part with his most gifted and dangerous creation.

While the program for the Boston Independent Film Festival described Dr. Nyle's motivation as a search for "spiritual enlightenment," it is more accurately a story of a mad scientist hopelessly imprisoned by his oedipal desires.
