Here’s the first trailer for the science fiction drama The Reconstruction of William Zero, which stars Conal Byrne as a brilliant geneticist who must re-learn his identity from his twin brother after an accident, however he comes to realize all is not as it seems.  The film is co-written and directed by Dan Bush and co-stars Amy Seimetz.

The Reconstruction of William Zero is having its world premiere at this year’s Fantasia Festival in Montreal, which kicks off this week.


William Blakely, a cutting edge geneticist, wakes from a mysterious accident with fragmented memories and has to re-learn his identity from his twin brother. But when William digs deeper, he realizes the shocking truth: This is not his life at all. THE RECONSTRUCTION OF WILLIAM ZERO is a sci-fi / drama told from two points of view: one innocent and hopeful and the other hateful and vengeful. It has a structure like a double helix. Upon first look it seems complex. But at the core, it’s simple. These points of view are mirrors – opposites – of each other. They represent two possible versions of the same human, both struggling to belong, both trying to understand their identity and fate.
