Director: Miryam Charles
2022 / 75min / DCP

When a Bridgeport teenager is found hanged in her bedroom, all signs suggest the cause of death as suicide… until an autopsy report complicates that cut-and-dry narrative. Haitian Canadian filmmaker Charles draws on a tragedy that occurred in her own family—the death of her cousin 10 years earlier—in her dreamy, disturbing feature debut, a mesmerizing work that’s part experimental mood piece, part inquest exploring the cold case and the false reassurances of domestic safety, and part conjuration of the unquiet spirit of the filmmaker’s lost relation, played here by Schelby Jean-Baptiste, through dramatic means. “Beautiful and unsettling, like a visit to a stranger’s unconscious.”—The Guardian
