SELKIE

American couple Keaton and Deanna, saddled with debt and buoyed by lust-driven optimism, move abroad for a fresh start. In their attempt to reinvent themselves as enterprising expats, they’re plunged into a torrid triangle with Alondra, an alluring and mischievous Selkie (half-woman half-seal). Keaton’s aggression and Deanna’s complicity result in a maelstrom of perverse romance and wet revenge in this dark, funny, and saturated exploration of violence – of being trapped – and two approaches to escape.
