Just hours after being released on Dust, Lauren Cooney’s epic British Sci-Fi Pendulum reaches over 20,000 views!

Lauren Cooney’s transcendent film was inspired by Gareth Edwards’ Monsters and tells the story of a generation born knowing the end of the world is imminent. After enjoying an award-winning festival run this powerful film will be released this month and was created through improvisation and guerrilla filmmaking in the dangerous jungles of India.

Synopsis:
Two friends seek spiritual salvation in India away from their hedonistic and disconnected lives, in advance of the impending collapse of the Cosmos.

Award-winning writer/director Lauren Cooney’s recent LBGTQI+ film Fluid premiered at the BAFTA-qualifying Underwire Film Festival. Lauren’s Shut Eye horror series was released on Gunpowder and Sky’s ALTER platform earlier this year. Currently, Cooney is developing several comedy-drama projects for TV, as well as her Jewish LGBTQI+ dramedy feature film Banging Down Under. Pendulum is Lauren’s debut short film and was created as a proof of concept for Lauren’s upcoming feature in development, Retrieval.
