Director's Statement
by Scott Forslund

Our film was inspired by a study conducted several years ago regarding patients with aphasia resulting from head injury or stroke. Approximately 70% of these patients gained an uncanny ability to detect deception in people around them, the seeming result of a fierce desire to understand the spoken word again. Keen observation of body language and other factors led to this faculty as patients regained speech. I shared the results of this study with my writing partner Tim Ryerse and we both agreed it would make a fascinating narrative film. We of course pushed the envelope with our storyline, but we also paid close attention to the medical science to give our film an authenticity that would connect with audiences. Lie Detector is a journey of self-exploration and coming to terms with what essentially becomes a super power for character David Wellman. And because our culture is ever-fascinated with lies and the people who tell them, future story possibilities are nearly endless.

Synopsis

A psychological thriller set in a world of hate crime, espionage, and extreme rock climbing, Lie Detector tells the story of David Wellman, an FBI special agent whose work in the Hate Crime Unit is suddenly derailed by a near-fatal car accident. When his injuries and complex recovery give rise to a unique ability to detect deception, this heightens his skills as an investigator and he uncovers an international arms conspiracy. But now living with the clarity of countless lies, David’s resulting paranoia devastates his family and jeopardizes his standing as an agent. This epic, personal journey underscores themes of love and redemption, taking David from the confusing world of his aphasia-stricken mind to the terrifying vertical walls of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.
