Directed by Edward Pack Davee

Oregon 2018 72 mins In English

Shot on glorious super 16mm, director Edward Pack Davee’s second feature film brings together a chaplain, an infantryman, and a 16mm war photographer in the middle of the forest during World War II. Void of actual battle, Davee instead presents a pictorial document of the ravaged bodies and minds of these three AWOL soldiers. Wandering through mud-caked landscapes, a cold winter steadily approaches and the weary men make their way towards something unknown. Davee’s direction employs a dream-like world in which the characters grope for meaning and fraternity in a world gone mad. Director Edward Pack Davee will be in attendance.
