After the TIFF, at the 37th Torino Film Festival, Harry Cepka brings his first feature film, his thesis film Raf with Grace Glowicki playing Raf and Jesse Stanley in the role of Tal, the intoxicating woman, the protagonist Raf becomes friends with. The director and his best friend, actress Grace Glowicki comment on how the film depicts the power dynamics in a friendship and how a person’s character can be shaped by the people they surround themselves with.

Raf: A techno-laced exploration of a tumultuous friendship from its giddy beginning to its sudden end. In the twilight of her 20s, Raf works two jobs and spends her free time playing boardgames with her boyfriend’s roommates. Privately, she fantasizes of a life of performance and dance clubs. Over the course of several charged encounters, she becomes friends with a charismatic and wealthy woman named Tal. Raf becomes infatuated with Tal’s take-no-prisoners lifestyle. With Tal as her guide, Raf begins to see a new vision of herself, until a humiliating weekend at Tal’s country home reveals the true power balance between them.
