ANNE AT 13,000 FT
a film by Kazik Radwanski
2019, 75 minutes
Anne hasnt been the same since the jump. While skydiving for her best friend Saras bachelorette party, the 27-year-old felt focused, free, above it all. Back on the ground, the pressures of her daily life threaten to overwhelm her. Her coworkers at the daycare center are constantly questioning the way she connects with the children. At Saras wedding, she meets a nice guy named Matt, but she cant help bringing him into ever-more-awkward social situations. As the stressful circumstances mount, Anne prepares for another jump.
An electrifying pairing of two of the brightest young stars in cinema in director Kazik Radwanski (Tower, How Heavy This Hammer) and rising talent Deragh Campbell (I Used to Be Darker), Anne at 13,000 ft reveals a director and star in perfect synch. From a rip-roaring skydive to moments of quiet reverie, Radwanski captures Annes experience with an unflinching directness, a volatile mix of Dardenne brothers immediacy and Cassavetes naturalism. And yet even from this privileged vantage point, its impossible to predict what Anne will do next.
