Synopsis

Ruth is getting over a breakup and all she needs right now is to have fun. During a bender of a weekend, a stranger by the name Michael appears in her room: it would seem that her wish has finally come true. Too bad that Michael is actually a ghost and the main consequence of this brief but passionate encounter is a series of annoying and repulsive symptoms of an unspecified illness. Abandoned by her friends, Ruth will have to find a way to re-integrate herself with the others. But is this really what she wants?

Director statement

“Lace Crater is a further exploration of my interest in deep, asymptotic intimacies, closenesses that verge on singularity, and the impossible reconciliation between the human desire for perfect mutual understanding and the inherent limitation of individual subjectivity. In this case, the central intimacy of the film is juxtaposed against Ruth’s decaying body, fragmenting social context, and radioactive psychic experience.”
