Visceral and raw, Felt is a special film. From Toad Road director Jason Banker, the picture blends his doc observational aesthetic with the real life of artist Amy Everson and a boiling narrative about surviving sexual assault. It leads dark, bare places that are frank about the world we live in and its monstrous effects. Shock Till You Drop presents an exclusive look at the film, out June 26th from Amplify.
In Felt, Amy struggles to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society and creates grotesquely costumed alter egos that re-appropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him – but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence.
Felt is a singular film, and one of the must-sees of June. You can see it in theaters on the 26th or On Demand from July 21st.
