WE GO WAY BACK
2006, 80 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

Aspiring actress Kate (Amber Hubert) has finally landed her first leading role at age 23, yet she’s conflicted about the creative and professional compromises she’s made to get there. As she reflects on her regrets, she is visited by an apparition of her idealistic 13-year-old self (Maggie Brown). With surreal, impressionistic imagery and a sure balance of comedy and tragedy, Lynn Shelton’s debut project wowed Slamdance audiences in 2006, winning Best Feature and Best Cinematography (Benjamin Kasulke) and introducing a distinctive new voice to the indie film world.
