Film Summary

American Independents | 1:37 | 2017 | USA | | View Website

With her family's Wisconsin-based farm in danger of foreclosure, 11-year-old Gitty finds herself immersed in a world both dark and fantastical. Surrounded by anxious, indecipherable adult conversations while having frequent visions of a horned being stalking the perimeter of her family's land, Gitty discovers a man imprisoned in an abandoned silo on the outskirts, a man whose plea for help forces her to choose between family and morality. A feature debut told with uncommon verve and lush beauty, American Fable is an exercise in sustained visual wonder, a Midwestern answer to Pan's Labyrinth.
