Eslyn has been the long-time president of Duplass Brothers Productions, producing some of the company’s most acclaimed films and TV projects including Room 104, The Lady and the Dale, the Indie-Spirit winner 7 Days, The One I Love, and Language Lessons. She also collaborated on and produced a number of the late Lynn Shelton’s films, including Your Sister’s Sister and Outside In.
“I can’t wait for Toronto audiences to take the ride that Biosphere offers,” said Cameron Bailey, CEO of TIFF. “Mel Eslyn, Mark Duplass, and Sterling K. Brown have crafted a completely original movie that dazzles with its audacity. It just has to be seen.”
Set in the not-too-distant future, Biosphere follows the last two men on Earth as they adapt and evolve to save humanity. The film is co-written and directed by Eslyn and stars Brown and Mark Duplass, the latter of whom also co-wrote the film. Executive producers are Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass, and the producers are Zackary Drucker, Mel Eslyn, Maddie Buis, and Shuli Harel.
