Butter on the Latch

Butter on the Latch

Directed by Josephine Decker • 2013 • United States
Starring Sarah Small, Isolde Chae-Lawrence, Charlie Hewson

Josephine Decker’s senses-stunning debut feature is a mysterious, erotic portrait of Sarah (Sarah Small), a frantic young woman who leaves the city for the apparent safety of a Balkan-music camp hidden deep in the California woods. There, as the swirling strains of the Balkan melodies grow increasingly disorienting, Sarah’s already-frayed grip on reality starts to unravel—leading to a shattering moment of transcendent violence. With shades of Ingmar Bergman’s PERSONA and early David Lynch, BUTTER ON THE LATCH splices visceral intensity with moments of serene, startling poetry.
