Cry of a Loon

Léa Marinova


While Karram, a carpenter in his forties, hires Lyla, a goalless hitchhiker, to work on his cottage, a subtle game of power unfolds. CRY OF THE LOON dances on the line between fiction and documentary, borrowing from the codes of the thriller to remind us our sometimes unhealthy fascination for the stranger.
