Director Nakanishi Mai just sent me word her newest short movie Swallow will be world premiering at Kaohsiung Film Festival next month. Like her previous short Hana, this one also displays Nakanishi’s hallmark eerie, atmospheric mood in a story that subtly peels back the dreadful nature of human beings.
Here’s the synopsis from Kaohsiung Film Festival:
A striving actress is invited to a private, mysterious gourmet club only to discover that her competition has prepared a horrifying banquet which devours her.
The cast includes Han Ning (Netflix Detention) and Taiwan’s “Scream Queen” and Golden Horse Winner, Vera Chen. Look for updates on Indievisual’s social media as more news becomes available.
