Woodshock by Kate Mulleavy and Laura Mulleavy was presented at the 74th Venice International Film Festival in the Cinema nel Giardino strand. The director stopped at our studio in Venice to chat about it, alongside the actors in the film, Kirsten Dunst and Pilou Asbaek. During the interview, the name of Tarkovsky is brought up, as this is we talk about Woodshock as a hypnotic exploration of isolation, paranoia, and grief where things “happen,” as well as a film that has a real “skin.” We also ask the actors what it was like to connect with this psychological energy of the film during their process of connecting with their respective characters, and another interesting terms pop up, some related to the concept of “artistic freedom.”
Woodshock is a hypnotic exploration of isolation, paranoia, and grief that exists in a dreamworld all on its own. Theresa, a haunted young woman spiraling in the wake of profound loss, is torn between her fractured emotional state and the reality-altering effects of a potent cannabinoid drug. Immersive, spellbinding, and sublime, Woodshock transcends genre to become a singularly thrilling cinematic experience.
