Production[edit]

H. was made as part of the Venice Biennale College- Cinema Program.[1] From the writing to the premiere of the film took approximately six months.[2]

Release[edit]

The film premiered at the 71st Venice International Film Festival and went on to play at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

The film received mostly positive reviews and holds an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, with The New York Times calling it "a clever film"[3] and AV Club reviewer Mike D'Angelo stating "its unusual amalgam of low-key, keenly observed naturalism and WTF inexplicability is potent enough to keep viewers enraptured."[4] A critic for The Hollywood Reporter ruled that "the film ultimately disappoints."[5]
