QUIVER

QUIVER Teaser Trailer

Suzanne’s grief transcends the boundaries of the natural world and arouses a primordial being. She courts this ghost, using intellect and desire to forge a union between them. QUIVER melds horror and passion with Virginia Woolf’s idea of a woman requiring a room of her own in which to uncover her true identity. Can Suzanne force a rift into the supernatural realm to build a space where she can coexist with what haunts her?

    My films explore hauntings caused by mourning. QUIVER looks at the parallels between grief and desire, which are both predicated on a visceral reaction to absence. Grief and desire overwhelm all other feelings and cause great suffering. Either state renders us incapable of reassembling our fractured selves without the divine intervention of a ghostly visit or cupid’s arrow. The pain of absence overwhelms until it numbs us. Often the first feeling to penetrate this haze is desire because it transforms the pain of absence into the pleasure of presence. Desire restores possibility and hope.     I am obsessed with the notion of transcendence. Exceeding the boundaries of the physical world is achievable in cinema. Sensory pleasure and supernatural intrusions are transcendent experiences allowing us to glimpse into the unknown. Through them we touch the sublime. What happens when these two are linked?
