About the film:

Best Director, 2023 Fantastic Fest
Special Jury Award, 2023 Sitges Film Festival

Ella Blake, a stop-motion animator struggling to control her demons after the loss of her overbearing mother, who embarks upon the creation of a film that becomes the battleground for her sanity. As Ella’s mind starts to fracture, the characters in her project take on a life of their own.

 “A deeply upsetting and utterly enthralling cinematic experience… Call it festival madness, but this may just be one of the best films of the year.”

—Mary Beth McAndrews, Dread Central
