Could you survive a week of Guantanamo Bay like psychological torture? Canadian director A.J. Bond – who we last looked in on with his time travel short Hirsute – returns to DN with new feature Stress Position; a mind boggling mix of documentary and fiction in which he and long time friend & collaborator, actor David Amito, test their fortitude, friendship and sanity. We attempt to get A.J. to unwrapped the enigma within this paradox of a film.
Stress Position (2013)
A genre-bending feature film about two close friends who make a bet to see which of them can withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other.
It was quite a bizarre experience where it wasn’t clear where the lines between reality and fiction were.
