COMING SOON: THE TRACEY FRAGMENTS
29 Apr 2008
Siren Visual is ecstatic to announce the forthcoming release of Bruce McDonald's powerful film The Tracey Fragments. Starring the remarkable Ellen Page in the title role of Tracey the film is an experiment in modern filmmaking.
As 15-year-old Tracey Berkowitz (Best Actress Oscar-nominee Ellen Page) shivers, naked under a shower curtain at the back of bus, her little brother Sonny is missing in the Canadian winter. How did she get here, what will she do, where will she go?
THE TRACEY FRAGMENTS is a journey into the jagged and confused mind of a teenage girl as she tries to deal with the emotional cesspool of her home, the brutality of her high school, the clinical cat and mouse games with her shrink, and soaring fantasies of her rock ‘n' roll boyfriend, Billy Zero.
Travelling through the city in search of her lost brother Tracey's stories begin to intertwine truth with lies and hope with despair as we move closer to the truth of Sonny's disappearance.
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, THE TRACEY FRAGMENTS is a modern day Catcher in the Rye. Director Bruce McDonald employs a revolutionary use of multi-screen effects to portray the confused mind of the teenage Tracey.
Told through continuous use of split screenings and time loops the film is the visual representation of the inner workings of the mind of a troubled teenage girl. The style is a confluence of pop culture references, the works of painter Piet Mondrian and the title sequence of the original Thomas Crown Affair. This unique approach meant that the film took over a year to edit and finish.
The Tracey Fragments is coming to rental stores in June and retail stores in September. More information can be found at the official website - www.thetraceyfragments.com - or by joining the Facebook group and becoming a friend of the Broken Social Scene soundtrack on Myspace.
