The Observer Effect (2016)

A student facing difficult choices about his future gets mixed up in a dangerous time travel experiment.

The Observer Effect is an independent film written and directed by Eric Hayes.  It was produced over a year and a half by more than 80 hardworking cast and crew members.  Shot on location at Princeton University, it is the first narrative film made with support from the Princeton Physics Department and Council on Science and Technology and features an original soundtrack performed by an orchestra in Budapest.

From social pressures down to the laws that govern the universe, do we really have free will?  The observer effect is the idea that the act of simply observing something can change its nature.  Along with other aspects of quantum physics, it serves as the inspiration for this mind-boggling story.
