he 4th Annual Cinema at the Edge Film Festival, presented by the Edgemar Center for the Arts, concluded its 4day run with its official closing night film, Tabloid Vivant. Writer/DirectorKyle Broomwas in attendance to help introduce the film and participated in a Q&A following the soldout screening. The film then took home the Audience Award for Best Feature Film.
Max is an artist seduced by the allure of fame. Sara is an art critic whose obsessions exceed even his. When she lands a writing gig at a major art magazine, the pair retreats to a cabin in the woods, where Max reveals his strange new painting method. Convinced of its potential, she agrees to collaborate on a piece sure to revolutionize the art world. While both original and mesmerizing, the project reveals something dark and disturbing about their relationship. Like two digitalage Frankensteins, they manage to make a painting come to life – though the unsettling consequences of their success may be more fit for the pages of a bloodsoaked tabloid than the chronicles of art history.
Tabloid Vivant is the first feature film by Kyle Broom, whose previous work Werner Herzog has commended as “subversive and highly accomplished.” It was produced by Alexandra Spector of Poly Blue, the production company that also made Broom’s short film “Prevention of Injury (POI)”. Tabloid Vivantstars Jesse Woodrow (Charmed, Beyond the Lights)and Tamzin Brown (The Adderall Diaries,Rebel).
