Make it a double feature with Attenberg and save!
William Gibson meets Samuel Beckett in Tsangari’s feature directorial debut, an exhilarating, shape-shifting work set mostly in the indeterminate spaces of hotel rooms and aboard a barge in Texas, as Global Nomad Project representative Petra Going (Lizzie Curry Martinez) travels the world, generating and transmitting memories back to the Experience Data Agency. Audaciously stylized and charming in its singular brand of lo-fi sci-fi, The Slow Business of Going radically changes forms (and, frequently, formats) with each strange situation Petra finds herself in. The result is a fast and funny ode to life without a home base and a stimulating exploration of human consciousness between the real and the virtual.
