  • Summary: A portrait of Shannon, a young woman who has lost her cognition and memory. Living in pacified near-isolation with Susan, her gentle yet enigmatic caretaker, she is content, but lacks any recollection of her past, her family, or her own identity. Virtually indistinguishable patterns in bothA portrait of Shannon, a young woman who has lost her cognition and memory. Living in pacified near-isolation with Susan, her gentle yet enigmatic caretaker, she is content, but lacks any recollection of her past, her family, or her own identity. Virtually indistinguishable patterns in both of their daily lives are disrupted by minuscule incongruities. Initially accepting of her relationship with Susan, Shannon eventually grows suspicious of her caretaker’s control and intentions. Unable to rely on her memory and subjectivity, Shannon grapples for insight into her present condition and Susan’s role in her life. Sundowning is influenced by neo- and hyper-realist films, but also draws from elements of Technicolor imagery, science fiction, and experimental film and video art.(Anthology Film Archives) Expand

    Role reversals, many mirrors, and a lesbian brushstroke indicate someone involved might have recently taken film courses on female melodrama; other thematic red herrings flip-flop, too irritatingly clichéd to recount.
