Sci-fi fantasy thriller The Philosophers stars British acting favourite James D'Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Master and Commander, Agent Carter) as a philosophy teacher mercilessly shaping his students' views on life and death in this enthralling story from filmmaker John Huddles (Far Harbor, At Sachem Farm), that will provoke thought and stimulate senses.

Described by the L.A. Times as a 'provocative survival story' The Philosophers shines a light on how humans react when their lives are threatened by a catastrophic scenario and has never been more relevant. Lauded by audiences of all ages across the globe and even studied as part of Palo Alto College's Introduction to Philosophy course, the film is now set for its anticipated re-release on UK digital in its directors' original form, on 24th May 2021 from (Yet) Another Distribution Company.

Featuring an impressive cast of acting talent including Bonnie Wright (Harry Potter), Erin Moriarty (The Boys), Freddie Stroma (Bridgerton, Pitch Perfect), Katie Findlay (How to Get Away With Murder, Man Seeking Woman), George Blagden (Vikings, Versailles), Maia Mitchell (The Fosters) and Philippa Coulthard (Howards End), the film premiered at Fantasy Filmfest to a rapturous response and was nominated for Best Motion Picture at the Sitges Film Festival.

At an international school in Jakarta, Indonesia, on the last day of class, 20 students from around the world are manipulated by their idiosyncratic philosophy teacher, Mr Zimit (D'Arcy), into conducting a final thought experiment before they can graduate. Using the tools of logic alone they must work out who among them is valuable enough to the future of humanity to merit a slot inside a specialised bunker - that only has room for 10 - during an atomic apocalypse, the rest must stay behind... doomed to be vapourised by the blasts.

Following a rapid trajectory of atomic detonations, psychological assaults and extreme philosophising, we're taken on an ever-changing-ride across multiple realities to fascinating and thrilling effect. Petra (Sophie Lowe - Blow The Man Down, Beautiful Kate) the brightest girl in class and her boyfriend, James (Rhys Wakefield - True Detective, The Purge), take centre stage as star-crossed lovers whose romance and fate plays out with a myriad of outcomes.

The Philosophers drills into both the beauty and the desperation of human behaviour, as it explores serious questions of emotion versus reason, power versus weakness and leaders versus followers and delivers a riveting, mind-expanding thriller.
