UNTITLED (GHOST FILM) by Sam B. Jones & Mimi Bai. 2021. 4 min.
In choreographed camouflage, two ghosts cautiously discover each other in the woods.
WE’RE ALL GOING TO THE WORLD’S FAIR by Jane Schoenbrun. 2021. 86 min.
A standout from Sundance and New Directors/New Films, Jane Schoenbrun’s debut feature is a hypnotic horror film of the internet age. The film centers on Casey (Anna Cobb), a lonely teen who enters a new virtual world via a mysterious role-playing game. Through webcam recordings and youtube wormholes, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair explores ideas of identity and isolation with gentle vulnerability.
