In “Seattle Road,” two young artists in love discover the pain and resentment within their relationship. Eve (Julia Voth) is the product of an affluent, sophisticated background, while Adam (Maximillian Roeg) grew up in a cult-like commune and has only recently escaped the confines of his upbringing. When Eve suffers from the loss of her estranged father, she convinces Adam to move into her father’s abandoned country home, hiding the fact that the property hadn’t been left to her and that they’ll be squatting. Together they embark on a tumultuous journey that examines their inner-most feelings, the intersection of art and life, and how vulnerability can beget more fissures within a relationship. Director Ryan David deconstructs Adam and Eve’s relationship through fragmentation and Biblical mirroring in order to better understand the complications of two people fated to be together. Watch the trailer for “Seattle Road” above.
