Welcome to our 2014 Festival Staff Picks column! We’ll be posting some first looks at Festival Films to look out for on the 2014 Film Schedule. Check back to the AFF blog for new Staff Picks each week!
One Eyed Girl
Like many films in this year’s impressive line-up, One Eyed Girl presents a story that reaffirms AFF’s mission for championing STORY. This Australian film, which is in the Dark Matters portion of the Film Competition, centers on a psychiatrist with demons of his own who is drawn into the machinations of a doomsday cult while being haunted by the death of a former patient. The film fits alongside other films that descend into dark territories like The Sound of My Voice and Martha Marcy May Marlene. Screenwriters Craig Behenna and Nick Matthews have written a script that, on the page, would very likely read as multi-layered and thrilling as it is seen on the screen through the film’s rich, haunting cinematography. One Eyed Girl is a film to approach with an open mind and watch with both eyes open.
