A personal assistant’s job is never done – when Jill (Lola Kirke, MISTRESS AMERICA) isn’t fielding angry calls from starlet Heather’s (Zoe Kravitz) famous ex, she’s quitting high-profile films on her behalf, fending off overzealous fans and setting up late-night karaoke sessions. And, when Heather’s break from the limelight forces Jill into the police spotlight, she’s bouncing around Los Angeles trying to solve a murky murder mystery, with a dogged detective (John Cho) on her trail.

Wowing audiences at SXSW, Melbourne and Locarno Film Festivals, GEMINI turns a tale of celebrity and identity into a pulpy, neon-lit puzzler brimming with intrigue and style. Blending Hitchcockian thrills and wry Hollywood insights, writer/director Aaron Katz (COLD WEATHER, HIFF 2010) crafts a propulsive whodunit that’s as playful as it is potent, complete with Kirke commanding attention with her naturalistic charms.

"An uncanny, exquisite synthesis of naturalism and genre, the film is a heady cocktail of high style and lo-fi whose sum effect is irresistible." – Village Voice
