Vyer Films (sg.vyerfilms.com), a streaming service focused on curating the best films with little or no prior distribution, is thrilled to be making festival favorite Exit Elena, Nathan Silver's equal parts hilarious and discomforting portrait of a makeshift family, available to audiences in Singapore, exclusively on sg.vyerfilms.com
Vyer Films, the film curation and streaming service launched in 2013 with the goal of highlighting the best films from the festival circuit that rarely come to a local cinema or are lost in the catalogs of traditional streaming services, is proud to be featuring another excellent film as part of its slate: Exit Elena, directed by Nathan Silver. Having screened this month at the Vancouver International Film Festival, Vyer Films released the film this week exclusively on sg.vyerfilms.com, marking the first time it will be available in Singapore. It will be joining other excellent and under-seen films released by Vyer Films including Nicolas Provost's The Invader, Mariano Llinas's Extraordinary Stories, and Philippe Grandrieux's A Lake.
"We are thrilled to be working with Vyer Films on the digital release of Exit Elena," said Silver. "Vyer is obviously in it for the movies and not the money, and that's a beautiful thing." K.C. McLeod, Vyer Films' founder and CEO, added, "Exit Elena is a beguiling film. It's easy to jump to conclusions as to what kind of emotions you think it will elicit, but the film in its entirety produces a much subtler, complex, and affecting sensation. At a time when even the most prestigious independent distributors are offering audiences predigested emotions, there is nothing more important to us than providing curious viewers with work that captures a portion of life we all know and yet is rarely depicted in film."
Exit Elena recently screened at the 2013 Vancouver International Film Festival, and in the past has screened at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Viennale, BAFICI, IndieLisboa, IFFBoston, Cucalorus, and the Woodstock Film Festival, where it won an Honorable Mention. Hope Dickson Leach from Filmmaker Magazine called it, "An exquisite gem of a movie," Jeannette Catsoulis of The New York Timesdescribed it as "Whisper-quiet and weirdly endearing," and IndieWire hailed it as "Beautifully observed and charming."
