KINDRED

KINDRED
By Phil Parker

GENRE: Action, Sci-fi, Adventure
LOGLINE:

A man who refuses to face his past is visited by his future daughter, with a desperate plea: confront his childhood tormentors, before they kill him and enslave the world.

SYNOPSIS:

Kindred is an original story with high stakes and universal appeal. Set in the Outback of Western Australia, it’s Back To The Future meets The Gods Must Be Crazy, when an Indigenous Australian goes back in time to correct a mistake and protect her family.

The film centres on her father: a conflicted young indigenous man called Ayinde, who’s tormented by his past - in the form of two corrupt local cops; and called to arms by his future - in the form of his time-travelling daughter, who arrives bearing heavy news…

One of the cops is about to discover powers which he’ll use to control the entire human race, and Ayinde is best placed to overcome him and save the world from a new Dark Age. But first, he must master his Legacy: a rare genetic mutation, passed down by family, that could unleash a superpower he doesn’t know he has.

With a mostly Indigenous lead cast, including strong female roles, Kindred is at once a touching father-daughter story and a breakneck superhero movie, played out against a relatable backdrop

of technology-led terrorism.
