You might not have heard about “H.,” but the unique picture has been making waves in the right places. At this year’s Independent Spirit Awards, the picture not only earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Robin Bartlett, but the film’s writer/director team Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia nabbed the Someone To Watch Award, cementing the mark the pair have made on their industry. And today we have an exclusive clip from the movie that takes you into a very unique world.
Also featuring Rebecca Dayan, Will Janowitz, Julian Gamble, and Roger Robinson, “H.” tells the story of two Helens — a middle-aged woman and a younger artist — whose mirrored lives in Troy, N.Y., begin to spiral after an unexplained event. Here’s the synopsis:
H. is a mysterious, modern interpretation of a classic tragedy in which two women, each named Helen, live mirrored lives in the town of Troy, NY. The first Helen is in her 60s, lives with her husband, and takes care of an eerily lifelike baby doll called a “Reborn Doll,” which she cares for as though it were alive. The second Helen is in her 30s, has a successful art career and is four months pregnant. One night, something unexplainable falls out of the sky and explodes over the town. In the aftermath of this event, bizarre and unexplainable things begin to happen. As people in the town go missing en masse and unnatural cloud formations begin appearing in the sky, the two women find themselves and their lives spinning out of control.
“H.” opens in New York City on April 1st, and will be released later on VOD. Watch below.
