OUR TASTE FOR LIFE BLOG Charlotte and Natalie took the time to send us their thoughts about Serpentine Pink;
“We were lucky to get an advanced screening of Serpentine Pink ahead of its launch on September 2nd, 2022. Wow, what a journey it was. It’s very clever the way the film has been directed. We especially loved the cinematography and use of symbolism. Truly compelling stuff!
The story is a painful and difficult one to tell. However, the talented female-led cast and crew behind the movie convey the message in a powerful and captivating way.”
In the wild west of California’s Joshua Tree desert, a solitary biker woman and her dancer lover have to find a way to heal from the wounds of their violent, visceral passion after a violent night brings to surface their past traumas. An ethereal psychic and her shaman companion converge with supernatural forces to confront and then heal the women’s deep-rooted personal pain, long plagued by the toxicity of possessive love.
Uplifting underrepresented voices both in front of and behind the camera, this is a film that taps into sustainable and innovative filmmaking to immerse viewers into a surreal journey that provokes the senses and entices emotion.
A dark, surreal experience from stage to screen. A first-of-its-kind, vortex of a lesbian John Waters film meets Yellow Rose meets the camp of early Almodóvar on a Lynchian induced trip through the Mojave. Serious Lost Highway vibes!
Serpentine Pink is a visceral neo-noir thriller with eclectic characters that explores how we can confront and heal from deep-rooted emotional trauma.
