The Kitchen

a film by Kurt Lancaster
written by Tina Sotis

A1930s farmwife seduces the farmhand to kill her abusive husband. This stylized production takes place around a kitchen table--where characters' feelings are expressed in furtive glances, not in conversation, eventually building to a shockingly mature conclusion.

I use strong, hidden light sources, spatial devices, and metaphors for the human presence to create an atmosphere of solitude and introspection into which the viewer can enter without interruption.
