The festival’s final night at FlynnSpace sees a pair of fictional narratives:
The Playroom is heartbreaking in its emotional and visual authenticity showing the children of a 1970s American family negotiating the divide between their lives and their parents’. The director, Julie Dyer, was present to give an interesting glimpse into some of the shoptalk of producing an independent feature.
In Another Country baffled me, to be honest. The after-talk gave some relief, as the three iterations of recurring but varying characters and situations centered around a European woman visiting Korean friends was intended by the director to be challenging and not provide any answers for what it all meant.
