Directed by Kassandra Tomczyk & Daniel Rocque
Cooped up in a seaside motel, a young woman’s monstrous pain has been too much to digest, lurking in the depths of her subconscious until now… Emotional and physical trauma is transmuted into empowerment through a series of surreal and bizarre episodes.
Kassandra Tomczyk is a performance artist, writer and director. Her work is a love of one’s fate or Amor fati. In this mood of seeing everything that happens in one’s life, including suffering and loss, Kassandra often explores themes of sexuality, abuse, female empowerment and the erotic. Recently Kassandra produced and directed The Yoga of Life which documents the evolving perspectives of several yoga students on a yoga teacher training in South India. In 2015, she directed The Nymph, a play about birth, multiple forms of sexual abuse textured with spiritual insight. Passionate and provocative, Kassandra is willing to push the boundaries of the senses.
Daniel Rocque is a director and cinematographer inspired largely by 70s independent cinema, Dogme 95, & The French New Wave. He has written and directed six short films across Canada and the USA and continues to hone his craft as a storyteller. Daniel explores an immediate concern with contemporary society by blending elements of realism, surrealism, comedy, spontaneity, and improvisation. While paying vital attention to artistic detail, Daniel’s lens captures more than story – it captures a stream of consciousness through the intimate depictions of his protagonists.
