Star Formation

A college student searches for the perfect gift for the boy she likes.

Holly has had a quiet crush on her friend Josh for years. She has decided that tonight is the night she finally lets him know. She spends the afternoon on a quest to find an obscure album by his favorite band, progressive rockers Star Formation. But the evening may not go the way she hopes.

Heartbreaking and human, this low-key drama was director Steven DeGennaro’s first collaboration with cinematographer Drew Daniels (Academy Award-Winner Skin, HBO’s Eurphoria). Inspired by the Dogme 95 movement, the film was shot entirely handheld in available light.
