Walk Away Renee

Friday, November 30 - Thursday, December 6, 2012

Filmmaker Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) embarks on a road trip to move his mentally ill mother Renee across the country. As they encounter roadblocks in the present, their story flashes back to moments from the past, giving us insight into this anything- but-ordinary mother/son relationship. Through musical montage, psychedelic sequences and real and imagined instances, Caouette’s intensely personal film raises questions about love, sacrifice and the reality in which we live.
