Exit Elena

USA, 2012

"Whisper-quiet and weirdly endearing." -The New York Times With no place to call home, 19-year-old Elena takes a job as a live-in aide. She finds herself thrust into the middle of a family in crisis: all the things that go on between a father, grandmother, mother, and cat. Eventually, Elena strikes something of a balance though... That is, until the prodigal son returns home. Placing fictional characters alongside real people, 'Exit Elena' is shot with all the rough edges inherent to family life and home movie form. Featuring: Kia Davis, Cindy Silver, Nathan Silver Directed and Produced by Nathan Silver Written by Nathan Silver and Kia Davis Cinematography by David Dahlbom Festivals: Vienna International Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Woodstock Film Festival, IFF Boston, BAFICI, Cucalorus Film Festival and more Press "Delicate observance and domestic chaos meet head-on in this gem-like character piece" -The Wall Street Journal "Silver locates the ordinary madness bubbling just beneath the surface of his own life, and flickers of lunacy abound." -The Village Voice

Using mostly amateur performers and improvised dialogue, Mr. Silver has created a profoundly awkward riff on dysfunction that's uneventful but not unrewarding.
