SLOW MACHINE | JUNE 11 – JULY 01
Directed by Paul Felten & Joe DeNardo / 72 minutes / USA
Stephanie, a restless and vibrant actress, meets Gerard, an NYPD counter-terrorism specialist who’s an aficionado of experimental theater (and maybe out of his mind). Flirtation ensues, ends disastrously, and forces Stephanie to the ramshackle upstate home of musician Eleanor Friedberger, yet this supposed escape is infected by violent memories of her past life. Starring Stephanie Hayes, Chloë Sevigny, Scott Shepherd and Eleanor Friedberger, Slow Machine is a miniature epic of paranoia, espionage, subterfuge, music, and performance captured on lush and invigorating 16mm.
“Critic’s Pick! A mysterious New York thriller. One of this year’s most mesmerizing movies. Films of such lo-fi aesthetics rarely feel this major.” – Kristen Yoonsoo Kim, The New York Times
