Amidst a period of unprecedented world events, an eighteen-year-old girl’s life is placed on hold. Isolated in her bedroom, she falls under the spell of the mysterious vlogger Patricia Coma. As time carries on, the lines between her dreams, fears, hopes and reality begin to blur into one another. From French master Bertrand Bonello (THE BEAST, ZOMBI CHILD), COMA is “a neo-Lynchian slow burn masterpiece” (International Cinephile Society) that creates a dream-like representation of our present and breaks apart boundaries of genre, filmmaking, and storytelling, COMA bravely confronts the anxieties of today in order to imagine the possibilities of the future.

“Pushes the boundaries of the so-called lockdown movie with its thrilling, chaotic form…. As a relatively short, minimalistic production, COMA plays like an amuse-bouche to Bonello’s recent epic, THE BEAST…. It speaks to an existential crisis that defines many right now.” —Beatrice Loayza, New York Times

“An unforgiving, nightmarish blast…. In an oversaturated market for pandemic-themed films, COMA is a delirious marvel of a reminder that, in the right hands, there is no such thing as an unfeasible subject.” —Rafa Sales Ross, The Playlist

“An amorphous film that flashes the middle finger to conventionality from its launch, COMA blossoms into a metaphorical and allegorical Rorschach test…. This film is not for viewers looking for conventional coherency. This film makes this point: How can the brain easily process a life-altering global pandemic and the politics swirling during its era?” —Caroline Cao, SlashFilm
