Day Trippers

Zoe, a British teen avoiding her mother’s funeral, and Ruth, an Israeli woman avoiding her own wedding, randomly meet on the faraway streets of Amsterdam. The two lost souls form an unlikely connection as they keep each other company during a drug-induced haze of a day, wandering through the city and escaping their troubles together. Hallucinogenic mushrooms are consumed, secrets are shared, imaginary flying tandem bicycles are ridden, and profound epiphanies are had over the course of this one eventful, otherworldly day. 

Allow this playful, psychedelic frolic of an unlikely buddy comedy to take you on an unforgettable trip, guided by the immensely endearing and hilarious lead actors, Nell Barlow and Naama Amit. Charming and whimsical, writer-director Veronica Kedar’s delightful slice-of-life dramedy is as imaginative and vibrant as it is grounded and nuanced, and serves as a reminder that profound connections can happen when we least expect them, with or without the help of hallucinogens. — Celeste Wong
