Kelsey Bollig is an emerging director who won a boatload of awards for her film Asking For A Friend (2019). That success makes her new feature, The Fourth Wall, a hot commodity. The folks behind the film send word it will make its world premiere at Fantasia Fest 2020. Wonderful!
Check out the trailer below, and then read on for all the details!
The Fourth Wall Synopsis
Chloé is a serious actress who’s spent her life on the stages of Paris. The result? She has been chipped down into a product of the scrutiny and unfair politics that infest the entertainment industry. Doomed to star in one last performance of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ Chloé fights for her moment in the spotlight amongst the self-serving newcomers she is forced to share the stage with. How far will she go to be the star of the show?
The Fourth Wall stars Lizzie Brocheré (American Horror Story: Asylum TV series), Roby Schinasi (Gossip Girl TV series), and Jean-Marc Barr (Le Grand Bleu 1988). The film also stars newcomers Victoria Lacoste and Jacqueline Bell who both starred in Asking For A Friend (2019).

Six Long Takes
The Fourth Wall is deeply immersive, packing a saturated punch that consists solely of 6 long, predatorial takes that build up to a shocking culmination. Given the shot structure, making The Fourth Wall took more time to rehearse than to actually shoot; in a way embodying a throwback to the days of film, while simultaneously offering something fresh for today’s digital culture.
The Fourth Wall will premiere at Fantasia 2020 from August 20 – September 2. Canadian Residents can purchase tickets here: https://fantasiafestival.com/
