Directed by Mark Andres

Oregon 2016 72 mins. In English

Artist and graphic novelist Mark Andres has adapted his unique storytelling method to the screen with a series of feature films depicting science fiction and traditional horror stories. Departing in theme, Three Days Drowning tells the story of an artist commissioned by a wealthy couple to paint their portrait. As the painting progresses over several days, the artist begins to learn more about his mysterious subjects and to question his own motives and past. We begin to discover that both subject and artist are not as honest as they appear to be. Created using a particular mix of drawings and minimal movement, director Mark Andres has begun to breach territory between moving image, idea and conceptualization.
