Slipping

Description

Slipping is an intimate journey of four women’s lives, as they slip between emotional and psychological torment. The characters coexist through their unfolding stories in a century old mansion. Their only link to reality is each other.

Conceived and filmed in rural Quebec with an all female team, co-directors Roshanak Jaberi and Karen Kaeja set out to merge their artistic voices. The fictional and haunting narrative of Slipping was shot through the lens of cinematographer Olya Glotka, and scored by Edgardo Moreno.
