Coming to international festivals this year, a new sci-fi short film starring Jacob Anderson (Game Of Thrones) and Ritu Arya (Humans) from award-winning director Jennifer Sheridan.
'The Super Recogniser' tells the story of Scott (Anderson), a seemingly normal young man with a very special talent. Thanks to his
exceptional skills of 90% facial recognition, Scott has been recruited to work in a secret government initiative. Under the
watchful eye of his tough-talking supervisor Agent Williams (Arya), this Super Recogniser is over-worked and under pressure as
he spends hours seeking terrorists and criminals captured on CCTV cameras. However, Scott starts to question everything after
he believes he sees 'himself' on the monitors.
What is his doppelgänger trying to tell him? Who is Scott really working for? Have his targets actually done anything wrong?
