Gregory Kohn’s most recent drama is not a feature but a short film, but as you might from Northeast and Come Down Molly, nothing is straight forward for the characters in this story. Produced at the American Film Institute, Good People follows Emma (Tamara Arias), a wife and mother who is overwhelmed by guilt after an intense affair. She returns home to her family hoping to reconnect with her husband (Dylan Stretchbery).
Triskel Presents – The Films Of Gregory Kohn
Welcome to the first instalment of ‘Triskel Presents’. While we are currently unable to present movies as a collective experience at Triskel Arts Centre, we have created this online initiative that our patrons can enjoy.
‘Triskel Presents’ will be a mixture of independent features and short films which can be rented from our Triskel On Demand Service, as well as a series of visual essays produced by our head of cinema Chris O’Neill, which will be available to view for free on the Triskel YouTube Channel and Vimeo Channel.
We begin with a season of films by Gregory Kohn, an American director whose low-key character studies can be disarmingly simple and immensely effective. As filmmaker and programmer Maximilian Le Cain states in the text here, Kohn is “a master of ambivalence and a filmmaker of tremendous subtlety with a unique approach to storytelling”.
