Festival Director, Ben Rider said:
Rowan Howard's moving performance leads the dark and brooding film that is Juncture. The actual narrative, which is largely presented in a cognitive form of dissected scenes and dark tones, focuses on a father and son's relationship, one which has become taught due to a rift in their family life struck with grief.
The film's smooth cinematography, shot by Alper Kasap, transforms the idyllic suburban setting into a dangerous horror setting; one reminiscent of the late-night slums of the 90's Japanese horror, such as the works of Hideo Nakata. It is this key element, working in combination with Luke Creely's well timed script and direction, which elevates this film's scale into a comfortable and commendable effort, one which fully embraces its 1.5k budget, and uses its afforded resources wisely.
