Midnight Forest Canal
Friday 18 January & 1 February 2019
at Howard Theatre, Downing College
Midnight Forest Canal is eerie and strange: it is Narnia, but more psychedelic. Derek falls into an alternative reality, meeting a litany of characters like the Serendipitous and Saturnine Serpents, the lost girl Jessica and the ghost Adrianne, who are alternately noobish and nightmarish. It is perhaps a parable of dating and acquaintances.
Excerpts of the film have enjoyed premieres at Cambridge Shorts, which Varsity described as “always entertaining and often brilliant in its mad creativity”.
