A great debut for the Smith Brothers, Volition is sure to deliver thrills and a mind-bending experience to sci-fans everywhere. We are thrilled to be bringing it to digital platforms.

Volition is a time-bending cerebral science-fiction thriller where a man afflicted with clairvoyance tries to change his fate when a series of events leads to a vision of his own imminent murder. Awarded as “best feature” at the Philip K. Dick Film Festival, among a slew of other awards and critical acclaim, Smith’s film is a tightly-wound puzzle of a ride.  

The film will be released in theaters, on Apple TV, Prime Video and other Digital Platforms on July 10, 2020. We’ll post the trailer when it’s available, but we’re excited to see this. How about you?
