Maria Bakalova ( Borat – Sequel to film cinema ) and David Strathairn ( Nomadland, The Expanse ) will be the protagonists of O Horizon.
The second fiction work by documentary filmmaker Madeleine Sackler , after OG – Original Gangster .
Written by Sackler, the film will center on Abby (Bakalova), a brilliant neuroscientist who has just lost her father, Warren (Strathairn), and tries to forget by focusing on experiments with the monkey Dorey. Until a programmer, Sam, offers her to use a technology of her invention to find her father, in a digitized version. The relationship that develops between her and this simulacrum of her father prompts her to reexamine her own life, from romantic relationships to her work.
O Horizon will be produced by Joseph Cross, Audrey Tommassini and Paul Nelson . Madeleine Sackler is best known for directing OG – Original Gangster , an HBO film shot inside a maximum security prison, starring Jeffrey Wright and the inmates.
