Felt red band trailer

Sexual assault is a tricky subject to tackle, as the outcry over that Game of Thrones rape scene reminded us so very recently. Too often it’s treated like just another crazy twist, rather than a grim reality that millions of people have to live with every day. Thankfully, that’s not the case in Felt, Jason Banker‘s character study-turned-thriller from Fantastic Fest 2014.

Starring and based on the experiences of Amy Everson, Felt follows an artist dealing with the fallout of sexual trauma in a most unusual way: by crafting grotesque costumed alter egos for herself. Her behavior alienates some of the people around her, but eventually she falls into a relationship with Kenny (Kentucker Audley). Watch the Felt red band trailer after the jump. (There’s also an all-ages version if you’re at work.) Read More »

Felt trailer

Fantastic Fest 2014 saw the debut of Felt, the new film from Toad Road director Jason Banker. Felt was one of the festival’s most striking films, with a power that has stuck with me for days after the premiere. The story follows a young woman named Amy as she embarks upon a journey of personal redefinition following a past trauma. Played by significant new talent Amy Everson, the character Amy is an artist whose work with fabrics and objects helps build a new physicality. She puts her work to use in a climax that resounds with rage. We’re proud to present the film’s first poster, and you can see that along with the Felt trailer below. Read More »
