Exclusive OTHER MONTHS Clip: The Rabbit in the Basement
Set to make its world premiere at SXSW this coming weekend, Nick Singer's Other Months tackles a familiar subject, but promises to shake things up a bit.
Here's the description by the festival:
Nash spends a year drawing into himself, becoming troubled by his work and disillusioned with his romantic prospects -- until a return home forces him to confront his inertia. Through pulsing dance floors, flooded basements, and strangers' embraces, Other Months takes the audience on Nash's journey of restraint and release. A character study, a visual poem, a headspace, and a feature film, Other Months is broken into three parts, each section correlating to a different time of year in tone, setting, and theme. Moving to the beat of its images as much as its plot, the film operates on the principle of repetition and variation, tracking the subtle shifts in Nash's static year.
Singer and his fellow filmmakers are graduates of Wesleyan University's Film Studies program, the same program from which sprung Court 13, the team behind Beasts of the Southern Wild. I haven't seen Other Months yet, but it has the potential to take a similar, unconventional approach.
Our exclusive clip takes a trip to an aforementioned 'flooded basement,' where a young man makes an unpleasant discovery. You can watch it below to get a feel for the movie.
