Pallasvuo, Jaakko - Retreat
A gay couple flees the city from the impending apocalypse. They meet another artist on the way and their hopes and plans transform unpredictably. Finnish multi-disciplinary artist Jaakko Pallasvuo's Retreat brings a postmodern knowingness to his take on the dystopian genre as he explores the clashing ideologies and emotions of a queer love triangle set at the twilight of the human race. An expressive, sardonic rendering of love, fear, and ennui in the face of oblivion, Retreat takes well-worn narrative tropes in refreshing new directions.
