Sam Max

Coop (2020)

  • Full Length

“In their extraordinary debut piece, Sam Max succeeds in telling an exciting, atmospherically gripping story in a nonlinear fashion by fluidly interlacing two levels of reality: the choreographed, self-contained rhythms of everyday life with a para-real world of the subconscious. Here, memory, death and dreams come together in a poetic space that makes otherworldly encounters possible. With a non-binary or transmasculine main character in the center, Coop provides an account of social isolation, and the consequences of a person's mental and sexual development being defined solely by others.”
