Genre: Experimental

16mm CinemaScope or flat print, DVD, VHS THE FOLLOWER blends a B-movie plot with the radical narrative shorthand of pure film. Two solitary people, a fashion model (Sandra Locke) and an art collector (C. B. Anderson) wreak havoc on each others' lives over possession of a valuable work of art. The story is set amidst the cultural iconography of the 1960s. The soundtrack, almost entirely without dialogue, combines source music and natural sound. A mysterious ending hints at who the survivor may be. Special opening night selection, 1999 CineVegas International Film Festival. "Excellent ... I was really held by it."-- Kathleen LaCamera, VISN Cable Network. film rental $75 (specify CinemaScope or flat letterboxed print) optional scope lens rental $10 DVD sale $45, VHS sale $35
