“The Visit” To Screen At The 7th Annual Irvine International Film Festival January 26th
Devastated by the loss of his wife and son, Ben responds to his mother’s sudden request for a visit. But when she announces the alleged arrival of his departed family, what he strives to sustain as a gentle encounter soon spirals into torment, finally revealing a most unsettling truth.
The Visit was born in August of 2014 out of a telephone conversation with my father about my late great aunt, at the time 102 years old. With great sadness, my father shared with me the curious ways in which she expressed herself and the stories she elaborated in her mind in order to cope with the loss of pretty much all friends and family members from her generation. I was fascinated by the mechanisms the human mind has access to in order to handle loss and grief. My great aunt could not have been more enthusiastic about this alleged party she needed to prepare for where she was going to see her sister and parents later that day. As the conversation with my father continued, an intriguing thought came to my mind, right after which I started writing The Visit and worked non-stop until this very day in order to bring the story to life. I hope that you have a memorable experience watching the film.
“The Visit ” will screen on Fri, Jan 26th at 8pm, Starlight Triangle Square Cinemas, Costa Mesa, CA.
