A mother-daughter relationship faces a harrowing test in Eric Micha Holmes's masterfully crafted thriller Rapture Season. When Mia mysteriously disappears from her college campus, her mother Joyce fears the worst — and a warning from Mia's ex-boyfriend reveals she may have left the country to join a cult. Joyce impulsively launches a cross-continental trip to rescue her, gradually learning more about the seductive cult leader via audio tapes her daughter left behind. Rapture Season is a truly engrossing and hypnotic experience, offering a bracing examination of race, identity, radical ideology, and the resilience of familial bonds.   

Directed by Megan Sandberg Zakian.
