Dark Star Pictures distributes in the US.
Reportedly shot on 16mm film with a predominantly Vietnamese cast.
Described as a “uniquely diverse and genre-bending tale in the vein of Dogtooth meets 10 Cloverfield Lane.”
According to director Corey Deshon, the film is inspired by “feminist existentialist philosopher Simone De Beauvoir’s “The Ethics of Ambiguity,” this film is a meditation on the morality and ethics of freedom and creative expression within an oppressed system. Through this surrealist psychodrama, we seek to explore the questions, “Can one truly be free if they do not will the freedom of others? “and, “If that freedom must come at a moral cost, who is going to pay?”
