Synopsis

Max leaves his lakeside town to live with his father on the fringe of suburban Arizona. Both fever dream and quiet trip, PAVILION creates a deep and ethereal world, showing us an innocent way of life coming apart at the seams, constructing an indelible image of the enigma of youth.

Our take

Mysterious and lyrical, PAVILION is a coming-of-age film of unexpected power and insight that you won’t believe is a debut feature.

“Seventy ephemeral minutes. You slip from image to image, pulled along by their beauty.” —Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
