2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Karen Cinorre’s Mayday

2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Karen Cinorre’s Mayday

Getting to go creatively madcap with art/set decor on the Isabella Rossellini starring Green Porno series, New Yorker Karen Cinorre made the jump to feature filmmaking after dabbling in clip/short form. Coined as a fantastical female-driven action film, she assembled Juliette Lewis, Grace Van Patten, Mia Goth, Soko, Havana Rose Liu and Théodore Pellerin for Mayday in what was a November 2019 shoot in Croatia and perhaps NYC.

Gist: This focuses on a young woman named Ana (Van Patten) who is transported to a dreamlike and dangerous land where she joins up with a band of female soldiers engaged in a never-ending war along a rugged coast. Though she finds strength in this exhilarating world, she comes to realize that she’s not the killer they want her to be and must use her newfound power to try to fight her way back to life.

Production Co./Producers: Queen’s Army’s Karen Cinorre, Complementary Colors’ Jonah Disend, Sam Levy, Secret Engine’s Lucas Joaquin.
