Cinemad has released the U.S. trailer for Santa Cruz filmmaker Cam Archer’s sophomore feature “Shit Year,” and it’s a sight to behold. The film features Ellen Barkin as Colleen West, a Hollywood actress whose retirement leaves her flustered and in the arms of Luke Grimes, a young actor she falls for.
The trailer – which calls the film “a cam archer time mess revenge joke film love lapse of you” – includes a rush of stunning black-and-white 16mm photography by Aaron Platt and a collage of frenzied sound effects, narration and music.
“Shit Year” will be released in New York at the IFC Center on September 21. Ellen Barkin will be present on opening night for a Q&A. It had its world premiere last year at Cannes’ Director’s Fortnight.
