 A Q&A via Skype with directors Austin Lynch and Matthew Booth will follow the screening.

“Beguilingly beautiful. Haunting, unsettling. Astounding.”
— Joshua Oppenheimer, Director of The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence

“Gray House is a majestic and powerful work and within its structure and imagery, rather than plot or narrative, is where meaning is found. Lynch and Booth lead the audience to strange and terrific places.” — David Tasman, Frieze

Austin Lynch (son of David) and Matthew Booth explore the relationship between working-class people and their environments in this deeply disturbing and profoundly moving first feature film.

A silent fisherman in Texas, a blazing oil field in North Dakota, a mysterious community in Virginia, a women’s prison in Oregon, and a modernist home in California are the ostensible subjects of Austin Lynch and Matthew Booth’s feature, Gray House. But these explorations of sound, image, and cinematic time seamlessly blend documentary and narrative form, meditating upon nature, isolation, decadence, and destitution. Mysterious and elusive, yet possessing an aesthetic and sensory unity (appearances by Denis Lavant, Aurore Clément, and Dianna Molzan mix with direct addresses from real-life laborers and inmates), Gray House quietly recalibrates one’s sense of the world and our place within it.
