This Friday, Junes must-see Felt arrives in select theaters, including New York Citys IFC Center. There, director Jason Banker and stars Amy Everson, Kentucker Audley and Roxanne Lauren Knouse will be on hand for a Q&A following the 9:30 p.m. show. Shocks Samuel Zimmerman will moderate the discussion, as sure to be provocative and insightful as the vivid thriller itself.
In Felt, Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she 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 from the director of the terrific Toad Road. Here, with Everson, he pushes his doc-narrative hybrid further into raw, visceral territory. The film lays bare society around us and really shows its teeth back at it. It comes highly recommended.
