Official Trailer - A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. Starring Shelia Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshell Manesh, Rome Shadanloo, Dominic Rains, Mozhan Marnò, and Reza Sixo Safai. 

The trailer finally premiered earlier this week! I have already seen this film TWICE this year and have every intention of seeing it a third time once it’s released in November. Can’t stress how amazing this film is. It’s beautiful and dark and sweet and funny. Just incredible. You can read my praise from March when I first had the opportunity to this at New Directors/New Films here.  

Please, please, please go see this film when it’s released on November 21st. You’ll be supporting a great film by a woman of color and it’ll be the best decision you have probably made all year. 

The sisters began talking about their post-tour plans — they were going to relax for a month, and begin writing their new album. “Do you guys keep a journal?” Nicks asked. Este replied that she kept notes on her phone. Nicks asked Lori to bring down her most recent red-leather journal, with its pages edged in gold, which she keeps beside her bed and writes in nightly. So began a lesson in journaling: On the right-hand side of the page you write what happened that day, and on the left-hand side you write poems, so when you have an evening where you’re like, “I’m gonna light all the candles and I’m gonna put the fire on, and I’m gonna go sit at the piano and write,” you can dip into your diaries and instantly find a poem and begin. “You want your journals written by hand in a book, because someday, if you have daughters — I don’t have daughters, but I have fairy goddaughters, thousands of them — all of these books are gonna go to them, and they’re gonna sit around just like we are now, and they’re gonna read them out loud, and they’re going to be able to know what my life was.” Then, pointedly, to Este: “And they’re not gonna find it in your phone.”
