ASTRID'S SELF PORTRAIT
2015, Rena Riffel Films, 81 min, USA, Dir: Rena Riffel

In this surreal film-within-a-film, Astrid Von Star (Rena Riffel) attempts to make the greatest avant-garde film in history. Abruptly dismissed from her position as a top Hollywood film critic, Astrid calls on her sole surviving ex-husband (Gregory Heath) to be her personal cinematographer on the new film project. As her passion overtakes her sanity, she reminisces about her seven tragically failed marriages and the unsolved mystery that made her a widow six times over. Delusions of grandeur are followed by a deadly nervous breakdown, but her abandoned footage earns critical acclaim after being discovered by a highly regarded professor (Philippe Mora), who re-edits Astrid's film and develops an unhealthy obsession for her.
