Surrender to your instincts
Brought to you by Viking Pictures, Eisis is a story about the most fundamental level of human action—instinct, and it's relationship to adaptation and survival.
Award-winning Director Seth Blaustein brings life to the story of Eisis Thorsson, a life-long special operations soldier from Saesland, and his journey into the forests of Anlawath. Eisis is pitted against the odds in this tale of subtle complexities. As the lone survivor of a chance landmine explosion, Eisis must survive the forest home of an indigenous native tribe, the La-Wah. His warrior instincts lead him into a web of fateful encounters with the local Shaman, who lives by her own set of instincts. Allow yourself to be drawn into the ebb and flow of instinctive actions in this story that appeals more to intuition than to intellect.
A word from the Director
Surrender your ego at the entrance to the theater; this film is about letting go. There is no system in the human mind that can react faster than a set of instincts, built up over thousands of years beginning with our primordial ancestry. These instincts are our most fundamental guide in moments of imminent decision and trial. Yes, EISIS packs a punch of action, and there is genuine suspense, but if you are seeking a film loaded with inert characters and trivial bloodshed, don’t bother. Surrender yourself to your intuition, and experience EISIS with the most universal of human languages—instinct.
Saesmark and Viking Pictures bring the story of EISIS to the screen through non-traditional methods. Born on the page and brought to the screen, EISIS accrued the talent to produce the film through a partnership with an unorthodox group known as The Cinemilitia.
This unique process has accrued a versatile set of talents to bring EISIS to the screen, ranging from Green Beret fight choreographers to local engineers who build shot-specific camera rigs.
EISIS has been produced in the Washington D.C. area by local area artists. The people who gathered together to make EISIS were devoted to bringing the story to life, often at great costs to each person who worked on the production. THose who worked on this picture did so becuase they believed in an interesting, creative way to tell a story-a story that is not laid out neatly for the casual viewer, but intended for the person who wonders what "letting go" has to do with "getting things done." Show your support for local arts and at the same time enjoy a great film!
