Official Selection Feature
Genevieve, a New York intellectual, moves to the country with her self-involved journalist boyfriend, Sebastian, while he works on his latest project about sustainable farming.
Green is a meditative film about a young New York couple, Genevieve and Sebastian, who leave the city to stay at cabin in the woods. Neglected by the pretentious and self-involved Sebastian, Genevieve forms a friendship with warm and friendly local girl Robin.
At first Genevieve is enriched by this new relationship and Robin helps Genevieve to find her confidence and come out of her shell. However, when Robin and Sebastian form a friendly relationship of their own, Genevieve’s insecurity turns into irrational jealousy, leading to a rift between the women and mounting tension between the three characters. Genevieve becomes ever more obsessive, as the lines are blurred between reality and her jealous fantasies.
With an ominous, foreboding tone this is a bewitching and beautiful film, mixing the everyday and the mundane with something close to horror. The use of long shot takes, along with the beautiful cinematography, lets the drama unfold slowly and naturally. A remarkable debut feature from writer/director/actor Sophia Takal, Green has won plaudits for its intensely personal and feminine look at one of the darker human emotions. A slow-paced and meditative examination of jealousy, female relationships and identity, this film is intellectually challenging and visually stunning.
