For The Plasma
In a remote house in Maine, two old friends analyze CCTV footage of the surrounding forest to predict shifts in global financial markets. From this cryptic premise grows a lo-fi mind-bender of intimate scale and startling relevance that flirts with sci-fi and horror conventions even as it subverts them. For the Plasma juxtaposes pastoral imagery with surveillance technology, all set to an out-there score by legendary video game composer Keiichi Suzuki of the Earthbound series, and every shade and shadow captured in gorgeous 16mm.

Youre unlikely to see a more peculiar debut than [the] sneakily cryptic For the Plasmait offers many pleasures, but no single interpretation, and that open-ended state is a liberating alternative to anything else in recent American cinema. Eric Kohn, Indiewire

For the Plasma is a modest project of big ideas: about solitude, collaboration, conspiracy, magical thinking. Melissa Anderson, Artforum

For the Plasma delivers a dry New England strain of crazy, set in a serene seaside village in MaineThe smooth yet floaty direction sublimates the rocky, implacable landscape into something disturbingly ethereal. Richard Brody, New Yorker

Praise for the soundtrack:

An aural sensation ... enchanting." Jason Ooim, The Playlist

"Infectious ... exuberant and jovial, foreboding and mysterious." Kevin Rakestaw, Film Pulse

"Synth-heavy music  sometimes bouncy and playful, other times cascading and unsettling  provides jagged, beguiling accompaniment to a story that drifts along to its own blissfully idiosyncratic tune." Nick Schager, Variety
