From writer/director Richard Ryan and producer Jackie Nova, ART OF DECEPTION held its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Awards, and went on to play the Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival, Milan’s International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema, and has competed in numerous awards competitions including the International Independent Film Awards and the Depth of Field International Film Festival Competition, taking home awards for Best Original Score at both.
“Writer/Director Richard Ryan has crafted a taut entertaining thriller” said Richard Ross, Co-President of Breaking Glass Pictures. “This CIA infused “man vs. world domination” story delivers kick-ass action with a cool and satisfying retro-tinged finale.”
After uncovering the CIA’s ruthless master plan for world domination by gaining complete mind control over the entire population, top scientist Joseph Markham is ultimately left with a choice: save the lives of billions…or the life of his wife, who has been kidnapped, interrogated, and brutally tortured as she viciously fights for her life. As a nationwide manhunt ensues, deadly assassins pursue, and one man’s decision will determine the fate of the world, Art of Deception is about a fight for life, love and world dominance.
