  6. Wilderness

    Justin John Doherty / Independent / World Cinema features / United Kingdom / 2017 / 84 mins
    Influenced by the character driven style of John Cassavetes’ films, Wilderness introduces viewers to John, a touring jazz musician who has never met a woman like Alice. That's because there aren't many women like Alice. Their love is urgent and physical and they have made heady declarations of devotion to each other. Blowing out of the city like a whirlwind in the night, Alice and John flee to the coast. However, over the course of this romantic weekend getaway, they come into contact with strangers and friends and the bubble threatens to burst as they discover the vulnerabilities, flaws and manipulations that were previously masked by the blissful waves of new love.
