Mill Creek Entertainment will release the historical sci-fi thriller Flora Aug. 7 on Blu-ray and digital.
Filmed in the Canadian wilderness, Flora is set in the summer of 1929 and follows a small expedition of Ivy League botanists through an uncharted forest on the North American frontier. Tasked to study the native flora, the students unearth a deadly organism and are soon in a fight with nature itself.
Special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette, trailers, deleted scenes, and commentary with writer-director-producer Sasha Louis Vukovic, art director-executive producer-actress Teresa Marie Doran and executive producer-actor Dan Lin.
Flora premiered at the 2017 London International Science Fiction Film Festival where it won Best Feature Film. The film was awarded Best Original Screenplay at the Amsterdam International Film Festival; Best Feature, Best Director, and Best Cinematographer at the Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival; Best Science Fiction Feature at the San Francisco Independent Film Festival; Best Feature at the Escape Velocity Film Festival; and Best Score at Filmquest, during its U.S. premiere in Provo, Utah. It was also an official selection at the Twin Cities Film Festival, Other Worlds Austin Film Festival, Boston Science Fiction Film Festival and Lund International Fantastic Film Festival.
