Elevation Pictures and Get Reel Movies want to take readers and listeners to an advanced screening of Into the Forest! Screenings will take place in Winnipeg and Edmonton on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 and in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary and Halifax on Thursday, June 2, 2016.
In the not too distant future, two ambitious young women, Nell and Eva, live with their father in a lovely but rundown home up in the mountains somewhere on the West Coast. Suddenly the power goes out;no one knows why. No electricity, no gasoline. Their solar power system isn’t working. Over the following days, the radio reports a thousand theories: technical breakdowns, terrorism, disease and uncontrolled violence across the continent. Then, one day, the radio stops broadcasting. Absolute silence. Step by ominous step, everything that Nell, a would be academic, and Eva, a hard working contemporary dancer, have come to rely on is stripped away: parental protection, information, food, safety, friends, lovers, music — all gone. They are faced with a world where rumor is the only guide, trust is a scarce commodity, gas is king and loneliness is excruciating. To battle starvation, invasion and despair, Nell and Eva fall deeper into a primitive life that tests their endurance and bond. Ultimately, the sisters must work together to survive and learn to discover what the earth will provide. They find comfort in cherishing the memories of the happy family life they once shared. The natural world, art & memory sustain them. But for how long?
