Thirst Street | Directed by Nathan Silver
Reeling from the loss of her fiancé, eager-to-please American flight attendant Gina works a trip to Paris with her colleague Lorraine. Feeling adrift and lonely on her layover, Gina is dragged by Lorraine to a fortune teller, who predicts Gina will encounter her soulmate in the City of Lights: “a man with something in his eye.” After a onenight stand with nightclub bartender Jérôme, Gina thinks she’s found her man, but Jérôme’s new girlfriend Clémence has something to say about it. As she stays on in France and leaves Lorraine behind, Gina barrels face-first into Jerome’s life -- and down a spiral of miscommunication, masochism, and madness.
