Helen, a young forest lookout, invites Charlie to come live and work with her. But this is an odd job in an odd Maine village, for Helen soon explains she can predict financial movements by looking at footage of the forest.

Our take

Described as a “digital-pastoral,” and influenced by the disorientating cinema of Kiyoshi Kurosawa & Raúl Ruiz, this hermeneutical puzzle brings us back to basics: asking how we are to interpret (its) images. Endearingly ambitious, beguilingly stylized, a debut that plays with our every expectation.
