Sometimes the only storytelling task harder than shocking an audience is normalizing the shockor, in this case, the unspeakable. Dan Sallitt's pensive fourth feature film follows a young woman who could be everyone's heroine were it not for her "unspeakable" feelings for an older brother, feelings that Sallitt carefully and hauntingly picks apart using the camera-as-microscope. Featuring a groundbreaking performance from leading lady Tallie Medel, the sights and sounds of The Unspeakable Act redefine what we comfortably conceive as typical, while coloring our own typical experiences as grotesque.
