2016, 82' A unique exploration of the challenges that love can present and how our past and present experiences shape the decisions we make when the fantasy of True Love dissipates.

 ‘Every once in a while, an artist comes along who changes the way we think about film.’

NO FILM SCHOOL

Following her groundbreaking debut Bombay Beach (2011), director Alma Har’el returns with another genre-bending gem about our perception of love and relationships. We enter the psyches of three young people: Blake, an Alaskan stripper reflecting on her budding relationship and wondering how long she can carry on the job; Coconut Willie, a Hawaiian surfer who discovers he’s not the biological father of his son; and Victory, a young black woman in New York City pondering family bonds and faith. Har’el smartly interlaces these real-life stories with actors playing the protagonists at different stages of their lives, interspersed with exquisite choreography that subtly blur the boundaries between reality and fantasy. The result is a multi-layered, deeply atmospheric and poetic viewing experience, graced with a hypnotic soundtrack by Flying Lotus that will leave you questioning the myth of True Love.

– From The BFI London Film Festival program by Laure Bonville.

‘LoveTrue confirms that Alma Har’el makes movies like nothing else out there.’
