A Cloud So High

While living under the roof of his aging, disgraced ex-cop father Gene Sarling (John Savage, The Deer Hunter), mentally unstable 22-year-old war veteran Paul (Aaron Perilo, True Blood) evolves from a petty thief and ransacker to brutal killer. And Gene, also a recovering alcoholic, is forced to confront the fiercest nemesis of his entire life: his own son. The feature writing and directing debut of Hollywood all-rounder Christoper Lee Parson is an astonishing high-wire act, a thriller stylised to maximum overload for a uniquely unsettling viewing experience. 

REVIEWS

"Parson has crafted something messy and monstrously unwieldy – which, more than any reality effect or faux-documentary posturing, makes this fictive tale seem convincingly true to life. Complicated and confounding, stylised and sophisticated, this is Taxi Driver for a new generation."

About Christopher Lee Parson

A graduate of the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Christopher Lee Parson originally studied to be a film critic.

Parson has also performed on acclaimed projects such as “Assassins Creed: Revelations”, “Call of Duty: Black Ops”, “Family Guy”, Netflix’s “Love + Robots”, "Cookie Run Kingdom", and "Saturday Night Live".

 

In addition to his video game and animation work, Parson served as the voice for the Syfy Channel for years, voiced promos for The History Channel: International, Country Music Television, Canada's City TV, TNT’s hit TV series “Snowpiercer”, Fox’s “The Resident”, and IMDB TV's "Judy Justice".
