SYNOPSIS

Anne is a mid-20s, single, daycare center worker, whose personal and work-based responsibilities begin to destabilize her. After an overwhelming skydiving trip on the occasion of her best friend Sara's bachelorette party, Anne begins to apply a care-free joyousness to the mundanity of her conservative job, the effects of which begin to spill into her personal life, testing the relationships of her friends and family. At Sara's wedding, Anne meets Matt, who takes to her offbeat, confrontational charms, but pushes the limits of what's acceptable when even the rules of intimacy seem punishing.

WORDS FROM PROGRAMMERS

"Stylistically shaped around the protagonist, Radwansk’s filmi keeps us in close proximity to Anne without explicitly revealing her psychology, avoiding the pitfalls and clichés of a character study and refusing to define her uneasy state of mind. Perennial VIFF and independent Canadian film star Deragh Campbell (MS Slavic 7, Fail to Appear) gives one of the year’s best performances, crafting a fully realized character at once unknowable to the viewer yet deeply and completely felt." Vancouver International Film Festival

 

"Deragh Campbell delivers a knockout performance in Kazik Radwanski's ANNE AT 13,000 FT. A quick, lean and intimate character study, ANNE AT 13,000 FT presents a moving portrait of a young woman who may be losing her grasp on reality." Calgary International Film Festival
