Cognition is now showing at the Archlight Cinema
Filmed on location at Battersea Power Station, Cognition is a short dystopian sci-fi thriller about a son confronting his past trauma. Produced and directed by Ravi Ajit Chopra - the creative drive behind City of Tiny Lights and Trent2Rent - the movie journeys through the symbolic landscape of the subconscious mind, focussing on an unbreakable bond between a father and his son.
Starring Andrew Scott (Fleabag, 1917, Spectre) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Treadstone, The Railway Man), the film is released by Talash Video Centre and Digital Boulevard, in association with China House Arts and Twelve Corner Productions.
Filming was made possible with support from various BBC departments, including use of the BBC News helicopter for aerial shots.
Described as a ‘short ‘ - which is basically a movie that doesn’t run long enough to be a feature film - Cognition premiered at the Power Station’s Archlight Cinema and is now on cinema release for two weeks. The film will then be available On Demand from 30th October via Apple iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

Director and producer Ravi Ajit Chopra said, “Cognition is a very personal film for me, I have always been fascinated with the inner workings of the mind, and what it means to confront your trauma/demons and follow your dreams….. I hope the audience will enjoy coming on this psychological rollercoaster ride.”
Samuel Karl Bohn composed the film score, renowned Production Designers Universal Creations (Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy) built sets and props, and Emmy award winning Supervising Sound Editor Stuart McCowan produced the soundtrack at Twickenham Film Studios.
