SYNOPSIS

Madeline’s Madeline, a bold American indie starring Miranda July and Molly Parker, weaves a beguiling thread of uncertainty and wonder throughout its story.

Talented teenager Madeline (Helena Howard) regularly attends a physical theatre group, managing her mental health issues through her passion for acting, which balances improvisation and intense emotional immersion. Her complicated relationships with her insecure theatre director (Molly Parker) and her paranoid mother (Miranda July) create a kaleidoscope of blurred perceptions between truth and imagination. Premiering at Sundance Film Festival 2018, Madeline’s Madeline is a personal and boldly expressionistic film by director Josephine Decker.

Ages 15+ | Contains sexual references

Miranda July’s short film Atlanta, will screen prior to Madeline’s Madeline.

Atlanta 1996 (11 mins) Ages 15+

Atlanta is one of Miranda July’s early performance works in which she plays the role of a twelve-year-old Olympic swimmer (Dawn) and her mother (Mary), who are preparing to compete in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia.

In this experimental short, July slowly reveals the complex relationship between the mother and daughter though awkward off camera exchanges and a complicated dream sequence that delves into the duplicitous nature of control.

Ages 15+ | Contains mature themes
