A woman returns after an extended trip to find things have drastically changed in her home. “Discontinuity,” by director Lori Felker, is a film about what can get lost in the edits of life: understanding, clarity, details. The film’s deadpan humor merges with a surreal haziness as strange occurrences and miscommunications pile up, signaling all that’s been lost in absence. It’s not about what happens, but about what you miss when you’re not there. As Tabitha arrives home to greet her boyfriend, Stephen, she quickly notices things are different, like instead of having one cat, they now have ten. And instead of having a comfortable rapport, they are combative and distant. At times drifting into some naturalistic, emotionally resonant territory as Tabitha discusses the reason why she was away, the film just as quickly snaps back into its strange surrealism, like with a story about handling cat poop, and then a phone call that reverberates loudly through the house. It’s an intensely original piece that disorients the viewer and repels easy understanding, but maintains an oddly endearing sense of humor. [Watch on YouTube]. (16 minutes).
