It's the near future. Only the powerful have oil. America uses forbidden mind control technology to keep productivity up and crime down, at the price
of no longer producing any art or culture, beyond the art of war.
In downtown Shanghai, an area blocks-wide around the headquarters of the People's Liberation Army hacking unit, one million people simultaneous

Two unmanned aircraft are hijacked and used to bomb military and strategic targets in Alaska, which starts a giant forest fire. It's a lot warmer in
the future. Alaska is more populated.
Two young Canadian men, Terran and Newman, make the dangerous decision to defend their Yukon homes against an unknown invading force that has crept
The invading force appears to be "mixed Russians, mostly Chechens."
But with no oil, there's no machinery, no trade, it's difficult to supply a militia, or a rebel army for that matter. Everybody is running out of

Giant Supersoldiers are in charge setting diminutive clones into action separating the "good" guys from the "bad" guys, as best they can.
As the sun goes down, McKintry, towering over everyone else, has a philosophical conversation about war and choice with Terran, who is suspiciously

McKintry concludes the "Canadian" must be an American defector or a spy.

Such is my new film Battle at Beaver Creek
As you can see, this is an extremely political film, wrapped up in an extrapolation of possibilities based on our present world course. But it's
also a sociological study of Canadian attitudes about American/Russian tensions of the past. It's also about how being programmed robs you of your
ability to choose. The film features technology that is on the cusp of transforming from science fiction to fact, holographs, google glass, mind
control via bio-electric magnetism...
It's not all heady philosophy of course, there's a lot of beautiful Canadian landscape, scary moments, funny moments, plenty of killing and even
I didn't tell you everything, that would be no fun. In fact, I've carefully written the synopsis above such that you will still find many surprises
in the film.
But don't take my word for it, read the review from ATS member karmicecstacy
, whom I quote now:
"Battle at Beaver Creek is a movie that speaks to my generation. It may be a science fiction film. but its plot is ripped directly from the
headlines of today. In an age where deception is easy and all information has to be gone over with a fine tooth comb. Where technology is slowly
turning us into interconnected zombies who feed off of Facebook instead of brains. Battle at Beaver Creek is a rallying cry. A message from the not
too distant future. Will we heed it? Or will this prophetic vision come true?
The movie hits all the points that an aware conspiracy theorist will be looking for. From HARP and the militia movement to the MKULTRA like aspects of
WEFI. Everything in this movie is already happening. Just go out and read a newspaper and any tech site on the internet. All the technological,
science fiction elements are firmly grounded in reality. If you are a fan of realistic science fiction or a conspiracy enthusiast like myself. Hell,
even if you just like good movies and do not care about the broader aspects of the film. Do yourself a favour and see this movie.
From the masterful opening scene to the battle the movie is named after, Brian C. Taylor proves he has the keen eye of a director. Especially
considering this is his first feature length film. I can not wait to see what Taylor can do with a bigger budget. This movie is fantastic multiplied
by amazing. It is fantazing.
The only bad thing I have to say. Is that the movie is obviously low budget. However the movie wears its heart on its sleeve. So while some of the
special effects are distracting at times, the multiple strengths of the movie, allow one to easily overlook this tiny flaw. When you have a story this
enticing. Special effects come second. Overall I give this movie a B-. It is hands down the best indie science fiction film I have seen."
Wow! Thanks karmicecstacy, that's flippin' awesome. I'm gonna send you a Battle at Beaver Creek poster. And you're right, the film cost 10,000
