Max leaves his lakeside town to live with his father on the fringe of suburban Arizona. Both fever dream and quiet trip, "PAVILION" creates a deep and ethereal world, showing us an innocent way of life coming apart at the seams, constructing an indelible image of the enigma of youth. One of ten films selected for IFP's 2011 Narrative Lab, "PAVILION" was also selected by the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 2011 Emerging Visions Workshop.
