UNITED STATES | 74 minutes | 2019

Facing an imminent blizzard, Yazmine, a young homeless woman, has just one goal: survive without compromising her own rules. Prowling the dilapidated tunnels of an unrecognizable New York, she’s wild as a cornered animal, keeping everyone at bay — not just those whose paths she crosses, but also the viewer. Driven by breathless pacing and careful staging that downplays any victimization or wallowing, Feral takes a hard look at urban squalor, with a standout performance from Annapurna Sriram in the main role. A film that gets under your skin and stays there.
INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE
Q&A with Andrew Wonder on October 17th


"A powerful examination of one woman's experience with homelessness in NYC with a captivating lead performance by Annapurna Sriram." Film Coterie
"A remarkable first feature... Sriram's performance is intense.” Eye For Film
"Sriram's performance is exceptional; she completely embodies Yazmine, in her moments of loneliness, self-entertainment, brutality, pain, and brief moments of joy." ScreenAnarchy
"Feral is an honest but surprisingly uplifting character study, as dark as the streets our main character walks." Nofspodcast
"With any number of high profile “Important Message” films put out each year, the subdued intimacy of Feral stands on its own as a film worth experiencing." Lewton Bus
