COLD NOVEMBER is a new feature film shot in northern Minnesota. It has been playing to enthusiastic, sold-out crowds at festivals around the world, including CPH PIX, Woodstock, Indie Memphis (where it won the top prize), and most recently at Twin Cities. Now, it arrives for a one-night-only special event at the Zinema 2.
Deep in the wilderness of rural middle America, 12-year-old Florence is eager to undergo the rite-of-passage of her first deer hunt. A tradition passed down through many generations of women in her family, the act of killing a deer symbolizes the transition into adulthood. As Florence is taught how to shoot a gun and skin a deer, she gains a deeper understanding of life and death. When Florence finds herself alone during a hunt, however, expectations dissolve into chaos as she must rely on her instinct and training to follow through with her decisions, pull herself together, and face becoming an adult.
