Q&A with Søren Juul Petersen. All ticket holders are invited to a Closing Night party prior to the screening.

Søren Juul Petersen’s directorial debut is a gruesome, grisly meditation on the potential for cruelty, exploitation, and violence inherent in surveillance and spectatorship. Gritty and lean in visual style and economical in narrative—which brusquely alternates between a vaguely menacing “before” and a graphically terrifying “after”—Finale follows two young women working a lonely night shift at a gas station on a remote country road, where the women soon discover that the convenience store security cameras aren’t the only eyes watching their every move.
