The Antares Paradox to premiered at Fantastic Fest 2022' Check out the festival trailer!

After the European premiere announcement at Sitges International Film Festival

(Noves Visions section), The Antares Paradox announces its international premiere at

the 17th edition of Fantastic Fest (Austin, USA) from September 22nd

to 29th


The film, written and directed by Luis Tinoco, has been produced by Onirikal Studio, the

visual effects studio that comes back to film production after the success of their

multi-awarded short film: Caronte.

The Antares Paradox is a dramatic thriller shot in a single location for three weeks: a set

created in the production company facilities. Andrea Trepat (Mar de Plástico, Gran

Hotel, Amar es para siempre, etc.) plays Alexandra Baeza, the main character who will

face a critical and extreme personal situation.

Aleida Torrent, David Ramírez and Jaume de Sans complete the cast, with the special

collaboration of José Luis Crespo (Quantum Fracture), youtuber and science

communicator with millions of followers.


Alexandra is on duty shift at a radio telescope when a strange signal is detected, and if

verified, it would answer one of the most important questions in humanity. She only has

two hours to verify the signal, but a sudden family matter will force her to face an inner

struggle in a race against the clock to unveil one of the mysteries of the universe.

In words of the director, Luis Tinoco, “The Antares Paradox is a bet for an independent

film type where the most important is the script, plot originality and the acting. A detailed

scientific research and the rehearsals with actresses and actors, who had freedom to

adjust the dialogs, has been the key of the verisimilitude and naturality of the film”.

The Antares Paradox soundtrack is composed by Arnau Bataller (Rec 4, Way Down, A

Perfect Day, etc.), recently nominated to the Goya Awards and winner of the Gaudí Award

2022 for Mediterráneo; the sound design comes from Andrey Francés (Keloid, The

Host Of The Heaven, Null, etc.); Frank Gutierrez in charge of the editing (La teta

asustada, Una pistola en cada mano); and Onirikal Studio itself would be responsible

for the visual effects.

Its writer and director, Luis Tinoco, has been a Goya Award and Gaudí Award nominee,

with more than 20 years of expertise in the visual effects film industry and has worked on

films such as Interstellar by Christopher Nolan (Academy award film for Best Visual

Effects) and Hercules: The Thracian Wars by Brett Ratner (X-Men, Red Dragon, Prison

Break, etc.).
