Event Details

84 minutes
Dir. Grayson Moore, Aidan Shipley

When Valerie Walker (portrayed in a towering performance by I’ve Heard The Mermaids Singing’s Sheila McCarthy) returns from prison after serving her sentence for killing her neighbour in an apparent drunk driving accident, she wants nothing more than to move on, reconnect with her daughters, and reconstruct her life. When the deceased man’s son Mark shows up at her door, however, it becomes clear that the past will not easily be forgotten. Despite being given her version of the tragic events, Mark wants to push further into what he believes really happened, whatever the consequences. An austere and tautly constructed psychological drama, as well as a thoughtful exploration of the challenges of both surviving and living with the many-sided after effects of trauma, Cardinals is an assured directorial debut for Moore and Shipley.
