NOTES

Title from title frames

Former performance artist Josephine Decker’s stunning debut feature is a deeply subjective, mysterious and erotic portrait of a frantic young woman, Sarah who leaves the city for a Balkan music camp hidden deep in the California woods. Once there she reconnects with a former friend, Isolde and does some hilariously foul-mouthed female bonding – until she finds herself growing attracted to a hunky male camper, Steph. Gradually her already-frayed grip on reality starts to unravel, as cinematographer Ashley Connor’s superb, disorienting camerawork and the swirling Balkan music become darker and more disorienting. Her personality finally shatters in a moment of transcendent violence that causes us to question whether we too have become lost in the deep, impenetrable forest of fear and desire. *"Elegant and elliptical, Josephine Decker's psychodrama is a blurring of the line between waking and dream states." - Michael Nordine, **Village Voice***
