An Evening Song (for three voices)

Sunday, Mar 17, 2024 at 5:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With director Graham Swon and cast in person 

Dir. Graham Swon. U.S. 2023, 86 mins. DCP. With Deragh Campbell, Hannah Gross, Peter Vack. Combining elements of Gothic horror, pulp mystery, and period romance, An Evening Song (for three voices) is set in 1939 and tells the story of a married couple (Vack and Gross), new to the rural Midwest, who become enamored of their pious housekeeper (Campbell). Swon’s sophomore feature displays a remarkable devotion to craft; he and cinematographer Barton Cortright created a custom setup that combined a large-format photography camera with a digital one, resulting in a classical vignette that never reveals the full frame—not unlike the effect of the narrative itself, which interweaves perspectives. The melodrama that bubbles beneath the story’s surface finds release in the performances of its remarkable cast. New York premiere
