Krisha (Trey Shults | Houston, TX | 83 min.)
A special Sneak Preview, presented by Rooftop Films and Indiewire as part of our joint Birthday Party celebration.
Expanding on his short of the same name, Rooftop / DCTV Filmmakers Fund Grantee Trey Edward Shults crafts a formally inventive look at the tenuous ties that bind and one interloper's desperate attempts to keep them together in his knockout feature-length debut, Krisha. As tightly wound as it is steady to unravel, Krisha opens with an unbroken steadicam shot of the eponymous character (Krisha Fairchild, the director's aunt) as she wheels her suitcase around a quiet Texan suburb. Visibly panicked, yet for no obvious reason, Krisha teeters even closer to the edge the minute she sets foot in her sister's house, coming face to face with a collection of long-lost relatives and a truckload full of unspoken baggage.
Portraits of addiction are a common enough genre, but Shults’ vision, which favors subjective sound design and camerawork to water logged flashbacks and exposition, feels entirely fresh, and more than justly deserving of both its Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award wins at this year’s SXSW.
Named one of Brooklyn's "10 hardest working bands" of 2014 by Oh My Rockness, Haybaby combines "awesome minimalist melodies" (Deli Magazine) with "crashing thunder catharsis" (Portal). The result, according to Indie Shuffle is "an emotive power rarely heard in today's ocean of music."
