"Mixing sexuality and teen angst with an undercurrent of sci-fi, this bold fantasy follows a gay disabled teen who undergoes a mysterious procedure that gives him the body of a young able-bodied woman in order to pursue his love object. Exploring how our bodies shape who we are and how we are perceived, Pulse is a modern day parable for the young, the queer, the disabled and for anyone who has ever struggled with their sexuality, their desires, and essentially, themselves. We are excited to be screening this debut feature from writer/actor Daniel Monks & director Stevie Cruz-Martin"

Could possibly ask if there is going to be a release on Itunes or something.

Where can you buy this?, best bodyswap premise I've seen in ages.

From: guest (Dw) , 55 months, post #4

Teaser trailer with a mirror shot

Easily the best bodyswap premise we've seen in a while, I agree with the above. And I hope we all support independent movies and productions like this when we see them. The bodyswap trope is one of the most interesting things we can think of when it comes to identity and relationships, and the way recent media have been handling it (I won't spoil certain recent movies) really makes me feel like we're in an upswing of great content. But who knows.

Please keep us updated with what goes on with this.

I agree Easily. It's nice seeing a TG bodyswap attempt something outside of the genre of comedy. There's a lot of interesting layers to this premise.

The actress who plays Olivia (Ollie after the swap) has a bunch of images from the movie on the IMDB page.

I like how this movie deals with how the character's friends and family react. Kind of an metaphor (analogy?) for people who transition.

Anyway, I don't want to get my hopes but about bodyswaps going mainstream but between this and that Anime that became the highest grossing film in Japan, it looks like the genre might be evolving

some clips from the movie are in this actresses showreel. Looks like the movie has a cinéma vérité or mumblecore feel to it.

2 clips from the movie featuring the guy in the girls body.

The first is right at the beginning. The second is at 3:17

From: guest (mX9) , 55 months, post #11
Is this movie a bodyswap, brain transplant, or a surgery transformation?

From: guest (guest) , 55 months, post #12
I think it's a sci-fi consciousness swap. One of the clips implies that the girl was brain dead so instead of an organ donor she donated her whole. In the trailer it looks like the character visits her old body in in the hospital.

This sounds... beautiful and deep!!! I literally started to applaud after watching this trailer!

This movies seems to be pretty interesting, especially because, unlike many body swap, that usually that concentrate themselves in cheap comedy, the trailer seem to be a more deep, I miss this in body swap content, like... making something more than one more comedy or romantic film.

Thank you for posting this here

I totally agree with that, I was waiting that some show such as "Black Mirror" toke this approach. I think the idea of changing your body rises a lot interesting issues to be debated and discuss.

And not only portrayed as a funny plot device, like in movies such as "Freak Friday"

Thank you, thanks to you I googled about what the heck was "cinéma vérité" and ended up finding this great documentar called "Cinéma Vérité: Defining the Moment" talking about this.

From: guest (guest) , 55 months, post #16
You're welcome, WhiteTights. I want to see that movie now!

I also found out that Australia has a kickstarter site called Pozible and Pulse was funded through there. Here's their pitch video.

Oh, that's so cool! I didn't know that, but seeing how the movie seems to be, it makes all the sense that it found people that were willing to financing it

A new synopsis with a few more details

Five Must-See Films at the 2017 Melbourne Queer Film Festival

A true original, this Australian film mixes grounded drama with fantastical sci-fi. A gay, disabled teenager undergoes a procedure to swap bodies with a young woman. Finally able to engage in things he’d only ever dreamed about – be it sex with the guy from the footy team, admitting love for his best friend, or gossiping about boys with his girlfriends – the young man quickly discovers the struggles of being a woman and another kind of outsider.

From: guest (Pappelmousse) , 53 months, post #20

Thats about all.
