MINE GAMES

USA, 2012 (MIFF 2012, Night Shift)

Director: Richard Gray

MINE GAMES

Deliverance meets Memento.

Local filmmaker Richard Gray takes a sharp stylistic turn from his debut character drama, Summer Coda (MIFF 10), with a smart möbius strip of a thriller that twists and turns in many fascinating directions.

Bound for a remote vacation, a group of young friends get lost and make a shocking, inexplicable discovery. With time looping back on itself, it becomes apparent that the more they try to change the future, the more they seal their fate.

Shot in the heartland of Twin Peaks - North Bend, Washington - Mine Games plays its warped psychological tricks against a bristling tone of malevolence. It's one to keep you guessing until the very end.

Richard Gray is a guest of the festival.
