We’re definitely in something of an Australian SF renaissance at the moment, with the likes of Shane Abbess (Infini) and the Spierig Brothers (Predesitination) pumping out well-received genre fair on the reg. Now here comes Restoration, an hour long high concept sci-fi thriller from director, Stuart Willis, that will make its public bow on 9Go! this Saturday, August 6, before jumping over to the Stan streaming service from September 8.
Set in a near-future world where people can backup their memories just like a computer, Restoration stars Grant Cartwright as Oliver Klein, a man who wakes up after a memory restoration in the wrong body (or his body wakes up with the wrong memories – let’s not go down the rabbit hole of identity science and philosophy just now). Craig McLachlan also stars, along with Nadia Townsend, Stephen Carracher, Rosie Lourde and Elizabeth Nabbin.
