About The Event
Directed by Joe Badon (2018, 99 Mins, USA)
(Lucas Boffin who plays David in TGIME will be in attendance)
Writer/director Joe Badon’s debut feature film The God Inside My Ear is a challenging yet wholly accessible and satisfying blend of surrealism, horror, psychological thriller, and science fiction. Imagine Repulsion by way of David Lynch and Luis Bunuel, with some Douglas Sirk high melodrama for good measure, and you start to sense what you are in for. It is also a marvel of independent filmmaking, and its terrific production values belie that it was made in 13 days for a mere $8,000.
Linnea Gregg turns in a winning, often hypnotic performance as Elizia, who is dumped by her boyfriend Fred (Joseph Estrade) when he announces that he plans to do some solo soul searching that involves esoteric leanings. Elizia is devastated — “broken,” in her own words — and her world starts to fall apart in highly unusual ways, including being engaged in reluctant conversations with her neighbour’s dog and a garden gnome. Elizia’s friends and therapist try to assist her as she continues on a downward spiral of confusion and depression, alternating between claiming to see God and feeling that she is being controlled by sinister outside forces. ~ Joseph W.
