As their days and nights unfold they begin to discover that others seek their tech to advance their own agendas. Agendas that they intend to fulfill at any cost.
Entirely shot on location in Arizona, EXPULSION was born from a wonderment and fondness for fringe sciences, particle physics and all of the possibilities they inspire. Anyone wanting to catch up with Friday the 13th alum, Lar Park Lincoln will find her performance captivating as the dark agenda driven futurist, Shara Fanning. Colton Tapp gives a multidimensional depiction by taking on two roles as both the antagonist and protagonist, earning him a Best Actor nomination at the 2019 Hollywood International Golden Film Awards.

Visual effects for the feature were completed by Nicky Reynolds (Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood) and the soundtrack was composed by Stephen Bennett (Moondance), who effectively intertwines synthesized retrowave music with a traditional cinematic theme. This unique mix of talent builds out an overall aesthetic that contributes to a grounded look at the surreal possibilities of the narrative.
