Movement + location
A woman from the future, marooned in modern-day Brooklyn, must fight to keep the life she once had from destroying the new life she's built.
Kim Getty is an immigrant from 400 years in the future, sent back to live out an easier life, and she's built a new identity in this time that nearly satisfies: she has a full time job, shares an apartment with a roommate, and is falling in love. But when she finds two other people from the future -- a 15-year-old girl and Kim's own long-lost husband -- Kim must fight to keep the life she once had from destroying the life she built here.

"Systematically yet subtly, the Bolings and their strong cast take this certifiably oddball film in some thoughtfully intriguing places.”
- Michael Rechtshaffen, The LA Times
"... a Rod Serling-esque sci-fi adventure of the mind, devoid of special effects but convincing us of its dimension-breaking elements through the use of dialogue, performance and music.”
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times
"Like its beguiling title... there's very little about Movement and Location that feels familiar or predictable."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, Chicago Tribune
"Bottom Line: This low-key sci-fi feature boasts a terrific performance by Bodine Boling... Movement and Location is an intriguing, offbeat surprise.”
- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
"Movement and Location is an original and intelligent immigrant drama… a surprisingly resonant film about how impossible it is for most people — no matter their cosmic time zone — to carve out a life that’s emotionally honest… You don’t have to be from the future to have the past come out of nowhere to screw up the present."
- Chuck Wilson, The Village Voice
"The drama that emerges from these broken, fugitive lives is as an allegory of exile, immigration and assimilation, while defamiliarising the things (food, water, space) that we take for granted in our own times."
- Anton Bitel, British Film Institute
