Trailer: The Arbor

In what will go down as the most bizarre documentary trailer of the year, Clio Barnard's The Arbor will certainly pique your interest... especially if you love unconventional films.

The plot for The Arbor sounds simple enough, a story following a woman as she retraces the life of her long deceased mother and renown British playwright, Andrea Dunbar. But the execution is anything but normal- mixing real life footage with reenactments. I won't spoil the trailer, but it's quite clear this is a film wanting to make you think and feel exactly everything faced by the characters on screen.

Will it work? Head on over to to judge the first glimpse yourself. Though it is currently only scheduled for a release at Tribeca and other film festivals, there's a chance it'll be brought to theaters in the near future.
