SF IndieFest: THE RUSALKA
First show: February 10
Inspired by a Serbian tale of a mermaid compelled to kill, Perry Blackshear avoids the usual mermaid clichés by focusing on the human side of her character as her relationship with Tom develops. Expressive and atmospheric, THE RUSALKA unfolds in quiet restraint, but with an ever-deepening intensity that explodes in an outburst of violence and monstrosity. A melancholy story of star-crossed lovers doomed from the start.
Directed by Perry Blackshear. 80 min. Narrative. USA.
