Trailer of the Day: Stress Position

Stress Position

“How bad could it be?” Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, British Columbian filmmaker A.J. Bond (HIRSUTE) made a bet with close friend and longtime collaborator actor David Amito to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other. Shot in an avant-garde “torture chamber” in an isolated warehouse under the supervision of associate producer Marguerite Moreau, what begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous reality TV scenario gradually spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship and exposing an unsettling connection between filmmaking and torture. (79 mins.)

Director A.J. Bond and producer Amy Belling will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A.

 

STRESS POSITION screens on Thursday, June 13 at 7p.m. in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
