HOLLYWOOD — Ox Films recently announced that its multi-award winning action-packed thriller, “Art of Deception,” directed, written by and starring former longtime  El Dorado Hills resident Richard Ryan, is now available to stream on Amazon Prime and TubiTV in the U.S. and Canada. “Art of Deception” has also premiered internationally.

The film revolves around the harrowing story of Joseph Markham, a CIA scientist played by Ryan, who uncovers a sinister plan involving a nano chip capable of controlling the human mind, according to an Ox Films press release sent to Folsom Times. Faced with the dilemma of choosing between saving his wife or the entire human population, Markham embarks on a thrilling journey filled with danger, suspense and a profound exploration of technological ethics.

“When I started writing ‘Art of Deception,’ the concept of neural nano chips was more science fiction than reality. They are rapidly becoming a reality with companies like Elon Musk’s Neuralink and Blackrock’s Synchron. These incredible technological advancements make the narrative of ‘Art of Deception’ even more compelling and timely for today’s audience. I am very appreciative and grateful to those with whom I have been able to share the creation of ‘Art of Deception,’ and I am inspired and excited for what is yet to come,” shared Ryan.

“Art of Deception” is a thrilling exploration of the ethical dilemmas posed by advanced technology. The film resonates in an era where AI and brain-computer interfaces are pivotal in scientific discussions. The film captivates viewers with intense action sequences and dramatic plot twists, providing a deep, thought-provoking experience. The film also stars award-winning actress Jackie Nova (“American Crime Story: Impeachment,” “Everybody Hates Chris”) and features the multi-award-winning cinematography of Vishal Solanki (“Caffeinated, ”Leaving the Factory).

Ox Films, a dynamic production company established by Ryan, is dedicated to creating compelling cinematic experiences. Ryan is a pioneer independent filmmaker paving the way for many as he was making minimal budget films as well as wearing all the hats about fresh out of high school before it became a trend. Ox Films has proved to be a notable player in the independent film industry, focusing on storytelling that resonates with contemporary audiences. “Art of Deception” is a testament to the company’s commitment to quality filmmaking and innovative narratives.
