Visionary British filmmaker Faye Jackson (THE OLD WOMAN WHO HID HER FEAR UNDER THE STAIRS) returns to the Born of Woman showcase – and has another work in this year’s Small Gauge Trauma lineup – with the extraordinary SNOWFLAKES (Canadian Premiere). A singular sci-fi/drama about the cruelties of deportation and prejudice, set in a UK detention center, where things take a hard turn into the fantastical as a group of people are about to be forcibly deported to Jamaica.
Unlock the puzzle that is MINOR PREMISE and confront a plethora of fascinating questions of self and psyche.
Noah Hutton’s speculative LAPSIS is an alt-present sci-fi thriller most relevant to the horror of our current, late-capitalist moment.
Anthony Scott Burns
Dreams twist. Nightmares come true. A distinctive and compelling work of dark science fiction/horror that haunts the space between wakefulness and sleep.
