Spring Interlude is Martin Sagadin’s first feature drama film. After the New Zealand International Film Festival and a small self-distributed run around New Zealand, Blue Oyster is pleased to finally bring the film to Ōtepoti. This screening was originally organised as part of the Dunedin Fringe Festival in March but was postponed due to the lockdown.
As the first independent contemporary queer feature film in New Zealand, Spring Interlude takes three characters and a simple premise about kindness and trust and turns it into an immersive experience of naturalistic dialogue, small gestures, glances and navigation of intimacy.
"As two girls go from being friends to maybe something more, one of them encounters a stranger who needs a place to stay the night."
New Zealand International Film Festival writes "Spring Interlude artfully circles the apparently mundane and haphazard to explore subtext and emotional bonds, and tensions that remain unexpressed. The easy flow and naturalism of the film mask the skilfully choreographed unfolding of scenes, which lead to a perfectly judged final moment."
