Saturday 9/3 - Thursday 9/8 5pm daily

“intoxicating beauty.” – New York Times

“truly poetic… lustrous cinematography” – Chicago Sun-Times

“Beautifully composed.” – Chicago Reader

“…cryptic images of ominous beauty, held together by pure surface tension, exert a strange fascination.” – Variety

“Alexei Kaleina and Craig Macneill’s proudly minimalist affair favors ambiguity over soap-operatics, evoking the inescapable heartache of a loss so great, it cannot be uttered.” – TimeOut NY

“Stunning cinematic debut … a film guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.” – i-D Magazine


Starring Michael Kelly (Fair Game, Law Abiding Citizen), Jicky Schnee (Perestroika), Ana Asensio (Zenith), and Rip Torn

In a haunting and beautiful countryside, a young couple hopes to start a new life. Andrew and Claire find themselves far from their roots. They move into an old schooldhouse that sits on a farm owned by an elderly widow and her blind niece, Maria. The couple’s arrival sets off events that will alter all the lives of everyone around them. As tensions build, a late summer thunderstorm and a solar eclipse trigger dark outcomes.
