I saw it at BAFICI, South America's largest film festival for independent cinema in 2016. The film does not easily fit into a genre and so will not appeal to everyone. It is a little like Yorgos Lanthimos directed Lost In Translation. The film is unique in that it disguises itself as a mystery: the disappearance of a rock star during the filming of a music video in a Japanese forest. But, underneath its eerie atmosphere there is a minimalist story about loss. The film plays almost as as a haunting love song, more than a narrative story. I saw it at the same time as another Canadian indie film Les Demos Phillipe Lesage and I thought both works showed promise from their writer/directors. The good work of its protagonist, Dree Hemingway (great - granddaughter of the writer), and an unrecognizable Pamela Anderson are part of the appeal.
