Justice Is Mind, the acclaimed psychological courtroom drama that has been screening at theatres, universities and science fiction conventions throughout North America, is pleased to announce its international premiere on Cunard Line’s ocean liner Queen Elizabeth on October 29, 2014. Mark Lund, Justice Is Mind’s writer/director, will present the screening onboard and also host a filmmaking presentation for guests. Justice Is Mind premiered in August 2013 and concluded that year as the 8th highest rated independent film released on IMDB (Internet Movie Database).
“I could not think of a more fitting location for the international premiere of Justice Is Mind,” said Lund. “Screening Justice Is Mind onboard the Queen Elizabeth represents an exciting opportunity to present the film to a worldwide audience in a truly unique setting. Having previously cruised on the Queen Mary 2, suffice to say I’m looking forward to sailing on Cunard’s newest ocean liner.”
Set in the near future where advanced MRI technology can read your memory, Justice Is Mind follows businessman and restaurant owner Henri Miller who has been afflicted with unexplained headaches since childhood. When he has the new FVMRI procedure and it reveals that he has allegedly shot and killed two people, the trial of the century begins in which Miller is faced with his own memory at trial. But all is not as it seems as a dark family secret, held by Henri’s minister father Joseph, reveals itself in the courtroom.
Since its release, Justice Is Mind has met with scores of positive reviews. “A psychological thriller, which develops slowly and then grips you with its logical twists and mysteries, haunting you afterward," Barnstable Patriot. “So much intelligence in the dialogue,” Unsung Films. “The characters…are strong and believable,” Frisco Kid at the Movies.
