Madeline’s Madeline

On a beach, a turtle is born. It erupts from its egg and crawls across the sand, desperate to reach the ocean. Via the camera’s point of view, the viewer shares in the creature’s exciting and daunting adventure. Already in these first images, the visual style of Josephine Decker’s third feature, Madeline’s Madeline, is personal and vivacious, easily matching the relentlessly curious spirit of its heroine.
