From the Press Release:

NEW YORK, New York – February 18, 2017 – Iranian-American filmmaker Natasha Kermani’s film IMITATION GIRL, featuring indie horror actress Lauren Ashley Carter (DARLING, POD), has been included in the Official Selection of the Cinequest Film & VR Festival 2017, and will celebrate its world premiere in March in Silicon Valley.
A mysterious being appears in the Southwestern desert and assumes the identity of the first person she sees – a woman on a magazine cover. Taken in by Iranian immigrants, she forms an understanding of her new surroundings, and comes to appreciate the beauty and the sadness of her new world. At the same time, Julianna, Imitation’s world-weary earthly double, knows both glitz and grit working as an entertainer in New York City, where her fraying life and relationships threaten her dreams for an audition that might finally set her on a happier path. On learning of Juliana’s existence, Imitation heads to New York, where only by sacrificing themselves to each other can the cosmic twins complete a full portrait of a woman.
IMITATION GIRL is Brooklyn-based Kermani’s first feature film and is a co-production between Illium Pictures and Cup of Joe Film.
IMITATION GIRL World Premiere Saturday, March 4th at 7:30 PM at Cinequest in San Jose, California. The film will have repeat screenings Sun, March 5 at 4:05 PM, Tue, March 7 at 1:00 PM, Sat, March 11 at 6:30 PM and Sun, March 12 10:30 AM.
“Kermani’s Imitation Girl is a lyrically compelling film that will make you question your own intentions in life along with those of the characters.”
– Sonia Maria, Cinequest
