*Online Premiere* A young woman impulsively travels to New York City alone, ignoring her mother's calls throughout the trip. “Girl, Removed” is a reflective drama by Anahita Amirshahi, charting an unusual couple of days in the life of an unnamed woman coming from an unnamed place. Details are sparse, and as she makes her way around - The Met, Central Park, Time Square - the magic begins to wear off, and the phone calls from home stack up. Loneliness and frustration builds; after awhile, she decides to pull up Tinder. The ensuing ‘date’ brings an infusion of character details and uncomfortable energy, and highlights how vulnerable and unprepared she is (she hides her suitcase in some bushes outside the restaurant). Amirshahi’s film is a minimal character study that captures accurately what it feels like to be in New York with nothing to do, no one to see - exciting, overwhelming, impossible - and it’s carried off by a sensitive and understated performance from Ellena Eshraghi.
