Eyeslicer Fest Closing Night Film: Knives and Skin
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Director: Jennifer Reeder Run Time: 120 min. Format: DCP Rating: NR Release Year: 2019 This September, DIY variety TV show The Eyeslicer is celebrating the release of their second season with a 4-day mini-fest of parties, events, and screenings happening all around Brooklyn. They're only showing one feature film during the entire fest, and it's one of the best films of the year: Jennifer Reeder's feminist, musical teenage dream Knives and Skin. Knives and Skin follows the investigation of a young girl's disappearance in a stylized version of a rural Midwest town that hovers just above reality, led by an inexperienced local sheriff. Unusual coping techniques develop among the traumatized small-town residents with each new secret revealed. The ripple of fear and suspicion destroys some relationships and strengthens others. The backdrop of trauma colors quintessential rituals—classrooms, dances, courtship, football games—in which the teenagers experience an accelerated loss of innocence while their parents are forced to confront adulthood failures. This mystical teen noir presents coming of age as a lifelong process and examines the profound impact of grief.
Venue: Nighthawk Cinema
