Oscilloscope Isn’t Horsing Around with Ann Oren’s “Piaffe”

This week the Oscilloscope of us went procuring including a Locarno comp title to their future slate. The firm lands Ann Oren‘s Piaffe – which can be programmed within the Zabaltegi-Tabakalera competitors at this yr’s San Sebastian Film Festival. Same class as Berlinale’s Robe of Gems and Cannes’ Un Certain Regard’s Godland. Oscilloscope is planning a standard theatrical launch for the movie in 2023. So anticipate extra movie competition play overseas and within the U.S. Our Nicholas Bell was happy by Oren’s function fiction debut:

“Often leading to sexual liberation, Ann Oren’s arresting debut, Piaffe, dives headlong into allegory. Titled for the dressage motion in horse coaching exhibition the place the rider sits atop a horse whereas primarily trotting in place, Oren shortly assumes the Kafkaesque place when her protagonist embarks upon an odd transformation instigated by an occupational catalyst. A fantastical homage to the magical attributes of cinema and the untapped eroticism lurking inside our primordial brains, Oren constructs a hypnotic train of metamorphic hedonism.”
