“Justice Is Mind’s release onto one of the leading VOD platforms represents a great milestone for the film,” said writer/director Mark Lund. “As a filmmaker I’ve worked with Amazon Instant Video for years but the addition of Amazon Prime will make the film available to an additional tens of millions that have an annual subscription to that service.”
Set in the near future where advanced MRI technology can read your memory, Justice Is Mind follows businessman and restaurant owner Henri Miller who has been afflicted with unexplained headaches since childhood. When he has the new FVMRI procedure and it reveals that he has allegedly shot and killed two people, the trial of the century begins in which Miller is faced with his own memory at trial. But all is not as it seems as a dark family secret, held by Henri’s minister father Joseph, reveals itself in the courtroom. The official trailer can be viewed at this link:
The original idea for Justice Is Mind came to Lund in 2009 when he saw a 60 Minutes episode on ‘thought Identification mind reading’ technology being developed at Carnegie Mellon University. In July 2013, the year Justice Is Mind was released, The Atlantic published a story titled “Could the Government Get a Search Warrant for Your Thoughts.” It was just this past August in 2014 that a story in the International Business Times “Mind Reader: Meet The Man Who Records and Stores Your Thoughts, Dreams and Memories” reported on a company that is pioneering this technology.

Lund adds, “With the science of mind reading and privacy front and center in the news, this has certainly helped in bringing audiences into theaters and developing a following prior to our VOD release.”
Since its world premiere on August 18, 2013 in Albany, New York at the Capital District Film Festival, Justice Is Mind has screened all over New England with stops in Canada, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and California which included the University of Mississippi School of Law, University of Boston School of Law, Carnegie Mellon University and VCON, Vancouver, Canada’s premiere science fiction convention.
Justice Is Mind’s next theatrical screening will be its International Premiere on Cunard Line’s Queen Elizabeth ocean liner on October 29, 2014 during a Mediterranean cruise. Prior to the screening, Lund will present a filmmaking seminar to guests.
