Posted by on Friday January 14, 2011 | PDN Video Picks

The feature film Without is a collaboration between writer/director Mark Jackson and photographer Jessica Dimmock, best known for her documentary series and book The Ninth Floor.

Without, which Jackson and Dimmock co-produced, will be screened at the Slamdance 2011 film festival in Park City, Utah, on January 23 and 25.

According to the movie’s press release, “As the days wear on, her isolated routine devolves into a struggle with sexuality guilt and loss.”

Here’s the trailer:
