With Joe Swanberg in person
Dir. Joe Swanberg. 2011, 69 mins. Digital projection. With Kate Lyn Sheil, Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, Ti West. Swanberg takes a fascinating turn into quasi-horror territory with this unsettling deconstruction of the actor-director relationship. He plays an indie filmmaker who starts to unravel when his girlfriend/lead actress takes a role in another director’s werewolf movie. Vivid colors, moody lighting, horror makeup, masks—Swanberg ratchets up his style to an almost expressionistic level for this intensely personal, deeply disquieting exploration of the dark side of the artistic process.
