A 2017 feature film Woodshock, a debut of visionary fashion designers and founders of Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, will be screened at the National Museum of Women in the Arts on January 6.
The film takes viewers on a trip into the woods and explores isolation, paranoia and grief in a dream-world setting. It depicts a woman struggling with grief and guilt by taking hallucinogenic drugs.
“Kirsten Dunst stars as Theresa, a haunted young woman spiraling in the wake of profound loss, torn between her fractured emotional state and the reality-altering effects of a potent cannabinoid drug,” notes the event brief.
“Immersive, spellbinding, and sublime, Woodshock transcends genre to become a singularly thrilling cinematic experience that marks the arrival of the Mulleavy siblings as a major new voice in film.”
“Defiantly inscrutable, Woodshock can test a viewer’s patience, yet the filmmakers’ consistent self-confidence creates an alluring, oddly hypnotic effect,” Washington Post columnist wrote in his review of the movie in September 2017.
A special exhibition is also on at the Rodarte, displaying Rodarte’s costumes for the film.
The screening of the 100-minute-long R-rated movie is free. It can be seen between 2:15 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on the 5th Floor Performance Hall.
