Director: Ben Hecking
Running Time: 93′
A classical musician (Christian McKay) travels to the South of France to escape his demons and wait for his new love, a younger woman named Sophia (brilliant rising star Charlotte Vega). Trying to come to peace with his new life in these slow, peaceful surroundings, his seemingly chance meeting with Peter (Harry Macqueen) will threaten to derail everything. The debut feature from lauded cinematographer Ben Hecking (Hide & Seek, EEFF 2014) is a tangled web of passion, trauma, memory and love, all building towards a great, operatic tragedy. A three-hander held together by riveting central performances and the increasingly claustrophobic setting of a country house, Provenance is a devastating tale of people who can’t escape their pasts.
