Out of Sync

Out of Sync

Spain | 2021 | 104 min | Juanjo Giménez

April 15 - 18, 2022

When time, space, and sound fall hopelessly out of sync for Foley artist C, she discovers her mysterious curse might be a gift in this unique psychological thriller from Palme d’Or winner and Academy Award® nominee Juanjo Gimenez.

It was oh-so-slight at first, the sound of her handclaps just a millisecond off between action and noise. But for Foley artist and sound mixer C (Marta Nieto), those disconcerting fraction-of-a-second gaps quickly grow from a second or two to more than a minute, throwing her work off and jeopardizing her career. Yet as C’s grip on the world slips and her life falls further out of sync, she finds that her hearing also now goes well beyond acute; that she can occupy a physical space and hear past conversations, the mundanities and intimacies of people long since vanished. And while she develops new strategies to gain control of her life, C is confronted by an unexpected revelation, bringing her to a reckoning with the emotional weight of sound and the unknown history she carries within in this mysteriously unique psychological thriller, the debut feature from Academy Award® nominee and Palme d’Or winner Juanjo Giménez.
