NOW I HOLD YOU CLOSE
Completed April 2023
This film will premiere at the McMinnville Short Film Festival in February 2024.
A woman suffering from night terrors uncovers layers of dissociation in a final effort to awaken wholeness.
Now I Hold You Close is a stab at feminist horror that honors its heroine in all her complexity. Gore is replaced by visceral movement, pushing the boundary of what we think of as horror and as dance simultaneously.
