Synopsis

For the Plasma begins in a remote house on the coast of Maine, where a young woman named Helen has found work as a forest-fire lookout responsible for monitoring the nearby woodland. While analyzing CCTV footage of the surrounding forest, she discovers she can reconfigure her perception to predict shifts in global financial markets. But when her inquisitive and demanding friend Charlie arrives at the house, Helen finds herself challenged and unsettled by her new colleague, and the two girls’ relationship begins to unravel. From this cryptic premise grows a lo-fi mind-bender of intimate scale and startling relevance that flirts with sci-fi and horror conventions, even as it subverts them. To the strains of an electronic score, For the Plasma juxtaposes pastoral imagery with surveillance technology, every shade and shadow captured in gorgeous 16mm.

Film Press

"By any standard, remarkable. Delivers a dry New England strain of crazy." 
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker 


“Beguiling. Unclassifiable... A modest project of big ideas: about solitude, collaboration, conspiracy, magical thinking.” 
– Melissa Anderson, Artforum

 

“A liberating alternative to anything else in recent American cinema.”  
– Eric Kohn, Indiewire

 


Soundtrack Press

"An aural sensation ... enchanting." 
– Jason Ooim, THE PLAYLIST

"Infectious ... exuberant and jovial, foreboding and mysterious."
– Kevin Rakestaw, FILM PULSE

"The great, synth score by Keiichi Suzuki adds to the oddity." 
– Brian Tellerico, ROGEREBERT.COM
 

"Synth-heavy music — sometimes bouncy and playful, other times cascading and unsettling — provides jagged, beguiling accompaniment to a story that drifts along to its own blissfully idiosyncratic tune."
– Nick Schager, Variety
