I’m So Excited About FELT
FELT is unusual in that it feels a lot more like a performance art piece than it does an indie horror film.
The film was produced and directed by Jason Banker (Toad Road), and it was written by Jason Banker and Amy Everson, with costumes made my Everson. It’s a small film that makes a big impact.
Now I’m thrilled that this extremely unusual, persona, mumblecore artistic film is getting a theatrical release this summer!
Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him – but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence. Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn’t just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off.
