Young newlywed Leda is haunted by strange visions in a hypnotic, 3D retelling of the Greek myth. Audience Award winner, Festival of Cinema NYC.
Freak Me Out is thrilled to present its first-ever 3D film – a stunning and eerie journey into fantasy. Samuel Tressler IV’s feature debut transports the ancient myth of Leda and the Swan to the dark forests and deep lakes that surround a mid-19th century mansion. Beautifully composed stereoscopic imagery carries characters and the audience into a realm where dreams, nightmares and memories commingle. Told without words and filmed almost exclusively in black-and-white, Leda invokes poetry and horror in its fable of birth, death and other-worldly desires. Tressler’s outstanding film has also won major awards at the prestigious Austin Fantastic and Another Hole in the Head festivals.

3D glasses will be provided.  
A captivating fever dream that uses music, sound effects, and startling imagery to weave its magical spell.
