A Woman Escapes (2022)

Running time: 80:51

Co-directed with Sofia Bohdanowicz and Burak Çevik.
Starring Deragh Campbell as Audrey Benac.
Original score by Sarah Davachi.
 

Audrey Benac lives alone in Paris after having moved there to tend to the home of her recently deceased friend, Juliane. Moving through the days without any clear motivation or sense of purpose, she tries to re-establish her footing in the world by beginning video correspondences with two filmmakers — Burak, who lives in Istanbul, and Blake, who lives in Toronto. This exchange of words and footage initiates a healing process, but the nature of the interaction is not what it seems.
