Black Conflux is set in Newfoundland in 1987 and centres on two lives on a fateful collision course. Jackie is fifteen and is trying to navigate from vulnerable adolescence to approaching adulthood. She is attracted toward Dennis, an older loner who has delusional fantasies of adoring women who are always available at his beck and call. Based on director Nicole Dorsey’s short film Dennis, which played at the RiverRun Festival in 2015.
