An alien ship chases a small plane, and both crash in the middle of the forest. The crash site is uncovered by Jason, a brave and bright boy, as he leaves his uncle's house to try to find his parents, who have been missing for two weeks. He also meets Lara, a young girl who arrived on the scene just before him. On board the ship, while trying to escape from the alien who is trying to get back on board, they are inadvertently propelled into the past to the time of the dinosaurs, just before the moment when the asteroid hits the Earth and changes the course of existence forever. The artificial intelligence M.I.A., a small, outspoken flying robot, accompanies the two young people on their journey to find their way back to their time and place before the planet is hit.

You read that right: aliens, flying saucers, dinosaurs, a meteorite, a robot... all that and more! TIMESCAPE is an adventure for the whole family that may remind you of Spielberg's ’80s Amblin productions like EXPLORERS, where young people are propelled into an epic adventure where imagination knows no bounds! The acting duo of Sofian Oleniuck and Lola Arts have a wonderful dynamic on screen, and fully embrace the humour of this ambitious premise. The film also fully embraces its influences, which range from B-movie sci-fi to, of course, JURASSIC PARK! Fantasia invites families to join the adventure, for young children as well as parents, during a special presentation in French, in the presence of the director and the two young actors. – Translation: Rupert Bottenberg
