Description

Set in one single day and night, The Park is a surreal, humorous, and eventually haunting romance between two teenagers in suburban Paris. Naomi is a quiet gymnast, Maxime is talkative, and on their first date they are content to simply wander about, sharing secrets and stories that reveal their innermost selves. But when the sun goes down and they have to separate for the night, a falling out via text messages causes Naomi to wander off the path and into the woods - where she encounters bizarre happenings that make her veer out of the normal, and into the paranormal. Selected for the ACID program celebrating independent artists at the Cannes Film Festival, The Park has been described as being “like a remake of Before Sunrise directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul.” - The Hollywood Reporter
