PINK HILL (2019), 75 min.
PINK HILL is the latest feature from Ajax Films. The Southern Gothic drama follows four friends spending a final Summer together. Leroy and Vye are suffocating in the small southern town of PINK HILL. They are counting on Vye’ s art work to be accepted so they can escape to Paris. Their friend Charles has given up on life and has become a recluse; Leroy and Vye hope to help him get on his feet before they leave town. A charismatic model, Azalia, enters the story and they become caught up in sexual obsession, jealousy and intrigue. While the characters are concerned with their personal worlds the forces of nature are pushing them towards darkness, magic and isolation.
Combining elements of art-film, drama and comedy as well as theatre reminiscent of Tennessee Williams the film can be categorised as Post-Underground. Highly atmospheric and lusciously shot in 16mm colour film, the images play a strong part in the telling of the story and will linger with you long after the film is over.
