"The 4th Dimension exemplifies the best of independent filmmaking by using intelligence and creativity to explore the very nature of existence and art. It marks the emergence of exciting new voices and deserves to be seen by a wide audience."
- Trevor Groth, CineVegas

Written, produced, and directed by Mattera and Mazzoni, the collaboration is a meditative examination of mind. An introverted genius becomes obsessed with solving the complexities of time, and enters a world between dream and reality - between moments of time and out of space.

Jack is a loner confined to a workbench in the back of an antique shop. When a mysterious woma presents him with a broken antique clock, unexplainable events begin to occur... After finding Albert Einsteins journal on his still unsolved Unified Field Theory, Jack becomes compulsive about analyzing time and theorizing it's connection to his supernatural experiences, his surreal drams, and his perception of reality, only to lead to the discovery of a larger mystery.

This indie gem has traveled the world since its premiere last year. The 4th Dimension played at the 23rd Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival, the Brussels International Festival of Fantastic Film, the Montreal World Film Festival, and picked up a Jury Award at CineVegas. We are pleased to bring it to San Francisco.

"An Alice-like rabbit hole of suppressed memories... simmering with neurotic emotions and surreal dream states... sustains a disturbing, somnambulistic mood."
- Robert Koehler, Variety
