SXSW 2011: SOUND OF MY VOICE Clip
Zal Batmanglij's Sound Of My Voice is a different sort of cult film in that rather than appealing to a small but loyal group of followers - ie inspiring a cult - is it about a cult and a couple attempting to expose it.
Previously selected at Sundance, Sound Of My Voice will also play SXSW and a new clip has just been released.Peter and Lorna, a young Silver Lake couple, delve into the underworld of a cult that meets in the San Fernando valley. At the center of the group is an enigmatic young woman named Maggie (Brit Marling) who never leaves her basement chamber. The members follow Maggie blindly-growing her food, obsessively sanitizing the house, giving her their own blood for transfusions. But why? We follow Peter and Lorna as they smuggle hidden cameras into Maggie's basement bent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the members from her spell. But when they themselves fall prey to Maggie's mind games all bets are off.
