Movie Trailer: Frederick Maheux’s Ana
14 April 2015 1:58 PM, PDT
Transgressive Canadian filmmaker Frédérick Maheux presents a new kind of occult thriller in his latest feature film, Ana.
The official synopsis from the filmmaker reads:
An individual investigating the disappearances of several female identities from the Internet. The missing women appear in encrypted and hidden videos over the web, leading the protagonist in an esoteric puzzle he tries to decipher.
Underneath this structure lies a reflection about our curiosity towards the spectacle of self-destruction. It incorporates the existence of real marginal communities on the Internet, such as pro-ana/pro-mia (pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia), and the aesthetic surrounding them: glitch, VHS, selfies, references to fashion etc.
Ana is Maheux’s third feature film and several of his short films have previously been reviewed on the Underground Film Journal, such as Yellow Fever and Extase de chair brisee (co-directed with Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt).
