Synopsis

Held captive in a specialized medical facility, a young woman with unique abilities seeks a chance to escape her obsessed captor. Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of the year 1983, Beyond the Black Rainbow is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. Featuring a hypnotic analog synthesizer score by Jeremy Schmidt, Beyond the Black Rainbow is a film experience for the senses.

Panos Cosmatos

Panos Cosmatos is an Italian-Canadian film director and screenwriter. He was born in Italy to Greek-Italian film-maker George P. Cosmatos (whose credits include Rambo: First Blood Part II and Cobra) and Swedish sculptor Birgitta Ljungberg-Cosmatos. The family moved to Victoria, British Columbia, in the early 1980s. As a child, Cosmatos frequented a video store named Video Attic. During these trips, he would browse the horror and sci-fi sections looking at the covers of films he was not allowed to watch, instead imagining what these films were like. His first break in the film industry was being a second unit video assist operator for his father's film Tombstone (1993). He made his first feature film, Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010), by financing it through D.V.D. residuals from Tombstone. In 2017, he directed the action horror film Mandy (2018), starring Nicolas Cage and Andrea Riseborough.
