Join Director Miranda Nation for a Q&A to discuss her feature directorial debut + screening of this Geelong-shot psychological thriller about grief and obsession set against the backdrop of local footy culture.
Struggling to cope after losing her unborn child, photo-journalist Claire (Laura Gordon, Joe Cinque’s Consolation) becomes increasingly obsessed with Angie (Olivia DeJonge), a pregnant young woman Claire suspects of having an affair with her husband, AFL player and mentor Dan (Rob Collins). It’s an obsession that could put both women in danger, but the deeper Claire digs, the more unsettling her discoveries become. Undertow is a bold and exciting leap into feature-length filmmaking for Nation, whose award-winning shorts Eli the Invincible and Perception have previously screened at MIFF. With evocative Surf Coast cinematography by Bonnie Elliot (These Final Hours) and a starkly topical underbelly, it’s bound to have audiences talking long after the final credits roll.
