The Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle presents a CIFCC Showcase presentation of THIRST.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2016 AT 5:00 PM
1122 Central Avenue, Wilmette, IL
THIRST (SED) is a claustrophobic thriller and an impressive debut for Chicago-based Ecuadorian writer/director Joe Houlberg. “The story concerns a young blind woman who vacations at a country home with her cousin and their two boyfriends. The house, a colonial mansion where the cousins spent summers in their childhood, seems to bring out carnal desires in the foursome and effectively functions as a fifth central character. Featuring ambiguous flashback inserts and an evocative use of image and sound to convey the sensory experiences of the blind heroine, this haunting mood piece establishes Houlberg as a filmmaker to watch” (Michael Smith, Time Out Chicago). In Spanish with English subtitles.
Followed by a live Q&A with Joe Houlberg moderated by CIFCC member Jason Coffman.
