After having its world premiere this past weekend at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, the first look clip from Karen Cinorre’s MAYDAY has been released. Make sure you check it out below and let us know what you think.
An unusual storm is approaching, and it’s about to change everything for Ana (Grace Van Patten). After a short circuit at her workplace mysteriously transports her to an alternate world, she meets a crew of female soldiers caught in an endless war. Along a strange and rugged coastline, men face the stark truth lurking behind damsels who appear to be in distress. Under the leadership of Marsha (Mia Goth), Ana trains as a sharpshooter and discovers a newfound freedom in this uninhibited sisterhood. She soon senses she may not be the ruthless killer they expect, though, and time is running out for her to find a path home.
Unafraid of pushing cinematic boundaries, writer-director Karen Cinorre stylishly blurs genres and draws us into the unique realm of her remarkable debut, where possibilities multiply and women take control of their own destinies. Both a feminist fever dream and an ambitious reimagining of a war film, MAYDAY detonates expectations to question where empowerment truly lies—and firmly brands Cinorre as a filmmaker on the rise.
MAYDAY stars Grace Van Patten (The Meyerowitz Stories, Under the Silver Lake), Mia Goth (Suspiria, Nymphomaniac: Vol. II, High Life), Stephanie Sokolinski “Soko” (Her, Augustine, The Dancer), Havana Rose Liu (Girls Will Be), Juliette Lewis (August Osage County, Natural Born Killers, Cape Fear), and Théodore Pellerin (Never Rarely Sometimes Always, Boy Erased).
Stay tuned for further updates about MAYDAY as we await news on its acquisition and future public release dates of this fantastical war-like film.
