The Retreat

The Retreat

In the aftermath of another failed date, Sam drags her long-suffering best friend to a no-men retreat with the hopes of finding solidarity with the other attendees. During their first session with the retreat’s eccentric owner, however, Sam is confronted by the stories she hears and is forced to see her own feelings of injustice- and her own behavior- in a different light. Created by an entirely non cis male crew, The Retreat is a short film about the struggle to reconcile personal experiences with a bigger picture.

Directed by Victoria Zerbst (USA)
