Wallflower Lennon Gates (Sylvie Mix) yearns for access to the inner sanctum of the underground music scene in Columbus, Ohio. When she creates a podcast to interview the local artists she adores, Lennon discovers her own musical ambitions, develops a fast friendship with the striking, confident performer Bobbi Kitten, and in the process creates an identity not wholly her own. Soon, Lennon’s aspirations, with some constructive coaxing from Bobbi to find her voice, lead her down a path of dark obsession.
“Spiky, funny, feverish, and more than a little nail-biting, Poser is an auspicious debut.” INDIEWIRE, Kate Erbland
“An equal parts charming and dark exploration of delusion” THE FILM STAGE, Erik Nielsen
“Dixon and Segev should be applauded solely for their casually authentic portrait of “the scene” (various bands appear as themselves)—many filmmakers have embarrassed themselves attempting something similar. But Poser is also more than that, starting off like a coming-of-age story before slowly morphing into a low-key social thriller.” BEST OF TRIBECA LETTERBOXD, Gemma Gracewood
