ALPHA is a sci-fi martial arts film featuring intense and extensive fight / stunt sequences alongside a reverse linear narrative. As the audience is exposed to the relentless battles of our protagonists, they simultaneously work to piece together the mysterious narrative of the film. 


In a near distant future, three genetically modified subjects are pitted against one another in a fight to the death. Orchestrated by an unnamed doctor (David Sisson) and his Artificial Intelligence "N.U.R.S.E." (Laurie Winkel), Subjects Echo (Ryan Monolopolus), Beta (Jake Guinn) and Delta (Josh Flaugher) realize that in this experiment, only one can be the new ALPHA.


Written and directed by Ryan Monolopolus. Choreographed by Ryan Monolopolus & Jake Guinn. Director of Photography Jeremy Cournyea. Co-created by On Camera Combatives and Foot Trail Films. Original music by Siete.
