A young couple settles down in a large abandoned industrial warehouse. An orange strip, glued to the floor, partitions the area in two equal portions: to the right, his sculpture atelier; to the left, her dance studio. PENDULAR takes place in this setting, where art, performances and intimacy mingle together, and where the characters slowly lose their capacity to distinguish between their artistic projects, their past and their romantic relationship. Murat’s second feature film, following the multi-award winning FOUND MEMORIES (2011), had its US premiere at Lincoln Center/MoMA’s New Directors/New Films (NYC), and has also been programmed at key festivals in Lost Angeles (AFI Fest), Seattle and Milwaukee.
