The new Red Band trailer for Jason Banker’s film “Felt” gives us a visceral look at the haunting true story inspired by artist Amy Everson. From what we can gather from the trailer, it looks like Banker’s cinematography roots will definitely shine in the film, and contribute immensely to the visually-driven narrative. 

The official synopsis reads: “Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggression of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely costumed alter egos that re-appropriate 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.” 

“Felt” will be released in theaters on June 26.Watch the trailer above and check out the poster below.
