First Proper Trailer For Zak Forsman's HEART OF NOW

We first wrote about Zak Forsman's Heart Of Now all the way back in March, struck by a promotional reel for the film released at the time. Forsman is one of the organizing forces behind Sabi Pictures, a sort of film collective that shoots heavily improvised and workshopped films Dogme style, high on intimacy and incredibly striking visually. Forsman's previous short, I F-cking Hate You, was a fantastic bit of work - dead solid emotionally while also being very funny, while also proving that adherence to the Dogme rules is now reason for your film to look bad because despite being all hand held and naturally lit, this thing looked amazing. And now here comes most of that crew with a feature length effort ...

“Heart of Now” concerns a young woman (Marion Kerr) with a profound longing for a sense of family. Devastated by her boyfriend’s sudden withdrawal from their relationship, Amber’s circumstance thrusts her back into the presence of the father-figure (Kelly McCracken) that abandoned her and her dying mother nearly a decade ago. Amber confronts the deeper issues at the very heart of her suffering, and finds transcendence in a brief moment at the very heart of now.

Check the trailer out below the break.

I'm kind of conflicted on this one. I've been enjoying keeping up with SABI, as I like their general approach to things, as it really does prove shooting DOGME style can work. Frankly any American Independent outside of the apparent mumblecore bruhahah will attract my attention, but the trailer isn't really hitting me in anyway that makes me want to see it.

Yeah, got one!
I know it's very early ro ask this question, but are they any screenings in Europe planned?

Zak ForsmanJanuary 2, 2009 9:25 AM

In addition to a global festival run, we are planning a domestic (the states) and international tour for late 2009. where in Europe are you, exactly?

I'm located in Germany but it is possible to attend a festival in the neighbour countries.
And sorry for the slow response!
