Australia – 26:06
Director: John Chatwin
Oliver visits the homes of people selling possessions online, his intent rather than purchase is to ask questions and create uncomfortable situations. Curious-City is a surreal drama examining secrets, desire and morality. A man enters stranger’s homes on false pretenses; his sexually devious wife flaunts her indiscretions and his exploitative psychologist experiments on patients and his suppressed wife.
SaMo INDIE says:
This surreal drama from Australia is one of the most unique films in our line-up this season. With a cat-burglar like grace, this film takes us on a journey that seems familiar and yet is anything but. With excellent performances all around, the film toys with expectation, upsets preconceptions and delivers a bit of magic in the process. Highly stylized visuals and a strong directorial hand make Curious-City a joy to watch.
