quietearth [Film Festival 09.01.10] Canada movie trailer news thriller mystery experimental

As I said in our last post, I've been following this sicne it was announced as a world premier at Locarno and have been eagerly awaiting a trailer since. It finally dropped today and it certainly does not disappoint. At times it feels like a documentary, and in others it feels enigmatic like Darren Aaronovsky's Pi. You can check out first post with stills here.

A meta-detective story about a reclusive woman who searches for meaning in the mysterious documents that keep appearing to her. Her investigation begins when she finds a tape recording of a man giving a bizarre lecture. Calming and sinister at the same time, he instructs how to ”get where you need to go”. Is this a random find, or a message to her? Another strange document presents itself, and another. Swiftly her home becomes an archive brimming with enigmatic texts, images and sounds. She forms deep connections with the people contained in the documents – the Lecturer, the Prisoner, the Inventor – each of them, like her, struggling with the unknowable laws of their own worlds. But the organizer becomes the organized when her meticulous system turns on her. The archive is a trickster which threatens to pull her mind apart. She must make a final choice: is she a free agent, or just a tool of the archive?

Trailer after the break.
