The Wisdom Tree is a 2013 independent mystery science fiction film.[1] The film weaves science with art, music and mysticism.

The film was screened to a limited audience in February 2013 at Emory University,[1] and to attendees at the Science and Non-Duality Conference,[2] (San Jose, California) in October 2013. The film's premiere[3] is scheduled for December 7, 2013 at AMC Metreon (San Francisco, California).[4] The film is slated for release across the United States in January 2014.[5][6]


Steve Hamilton (Patrick Alparone), a conflicted quantum physicist, is struggling to deal with the aftermath of a mysterious car accident. His research on a potentially ground-breaking theory is in jeopardy. Together with Dr. Trisha Rao (Sheetal Sheth), a neuroscientist,[7] and Mike Parker (Eric Holter), an FBI agent, Hamilton investigates a mystery.

Steve Hamilton is a quantum physics researcher played by Patrick James Alparone,[8] a San Francisco-based musician and actor. Mike Parker, an FBI agent, is well-respected in his workplace, but he is battling his own demons. Eric Holter,[9] an indie actor, plays this role. Dr. Trisha Rao is a research neurologist with her heart and interests set in classical music and Eastern mysticism. She is portrayed by Sheetal Sheth.


The film was written and directed by Sunil Shah and produced by Laura Techera Francia and Renu Vora.

The film score was composed by William Storkson, and features seven solo compositions rendered by Shweta Jhaveri, an Indian classical music vocalist and composer.
