Brief synopsis

“Point Blank” refers to a film scene from "The Misfits" (1961) that is now re-enacted and further contextualized. In the original scene, the recently divorced, female main character (Marilyn Monroe) rears up against three worn-out cowboys and, in the middle of the desert, confronts the men with all their lacks and lost dreams. In “Point Blank”, we see a young, adolescent woman wandering from a motel room into surreal Californian desert landscapes. Finally, she furiously screams and makes her voice heard, her words shoot like bullets through the hilly, quiet desert. Her fury aims at a place that depicts the obsessions of a distorted, patriarchal society and has become a dramatic backdrop of yearnings within the history of cinema and our collective memory.
