The film tells the story of Nash, who spends a year drawing into himself, becoming troubled by his work and disillusioned with his romantic prospects—until a return home forces him to confront his inertia.
Through pulsing dance floors, flooded basements, and strangers’ embraces, "Other Months" takes audiences along on Nash’s journey of restraint and release.
Described as a character study, a visual poem, a headspace, and a feature film, "Other Months" is broken into three parts, each section correlating to a different time of year in tone, setting, and theme.
Moving to the beat of its images as much as its plot, the film operates on the principle of repetition and variation, tracking the subtle shifts in Nash’s static year.
Filmmaker Singer and his crew are the next generation of graduates coming out of Wesleyan University's Film Studies program after Court 13, the team behind the award winning "Beasts of the Southern Wild."
Singer and his producers raised over $15,000 through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help finance their film.
A new poster has been released for the film's SXSW screening. See photo sidebar.
