If you know anything about multi-hyphenate Sophia Takal, you should know she is busy. Takal previously produced, edited, and starred in the feature GABI ON THE ROOF IN JULY, and she is now bringing her latest film to SXSW. GREEN marks Takal's first feature as a writer/director and, as part of the Emerging Visions section of SXSW, GREEN will have its world premiere next week in Austin.

So just what is GREEN about? Let's turn to an official synopsis to guide us! "Genevieve, a New York intellectual, moves to the country with her self-involved journalist boyfriend, Sebastian, while he works on his latest project about sustainable farming. Bored and neglected, Genevieve turns to Robin, a working class local, for companionship. When Sebastian forms a bond of his own with Robin, Genevieve finds herself overpowered by jealousy and insecurity. Tensions mount between the two women and soon reality and paranoid fantasy become inseparable." Oh, that sounds messy.

After the break, check out the trailer for GREEN. Let's see how messy we can get.

GREEN will show at SXSW on March 12 at 5:30PM at Alamo Lamar, March 15 at 12:00PM at Alamo Ritz, and March 18 at 7:00PM at Alamo Lamar.
