A strange knocking drives a young woman to the brink of madness following a traumatic event in Frida Kempff‘s (Meet the Artist) Knocking, debuting at Sundance’s virtual film festival as part of the “Midnight Section” this January.
The film centers on a woman (Molly) who has just experienced a traumatic incident is unnerved by a haunting knocking sound from upstairs in her new apartment building. As the noises become more desperate and increasingly sound like cries for help, she confronts her neighbors, but it seems no one else can hear them. In an unsettling quest for truth, Molly soon realizes that no one believes her, and begins to question if she even believes herself – a realization that is perhaps even more chilling.
Knocking is a sophisticated and psychologically suspenseful narrative in which she deftly amplifies Molly’s gut-wrenching feelings of self-doubt, coupled with a fierce and soul-baring lead performance by actress Cecilia Milocco.
