Stranger Things

USA, UK/English (77 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Oona, a young woman dealing with the loss of her mother, reaches out to a stranger: Mani, a mysterious homeless man of Middle-Eastern origin, whom she invites to stay on her property. Despite the space between them, Oona and Mani gradually form an unusual bond.

Stranger Things is the marvellous first feature by Eleanor Burke and Ron Eyal. Shot in Sussex (on the south coast of England), the film was created using non-traditional methods. Collaborating closely with the actors to build their characters and back-stories, the filmmakers only revealed the script to them in segments during the shoot. The result is a compelling and unusually intimate film, which explores the universal themes of grief, friendship and human vulnerability.
