The Green Room


film by Usama Alshaibi
starring: Tom Gilbert & Nicole Salm
assistant editor Kristie Alshaibi
art direction Kristi Petitpren

In the green room a couple waits, anticipating their own performance.

“Usama Alshaibi’s The Green Room opens with a man and woman being aggressively interrogated by the filmmaker about their sexual frustrations before it comes unhinged with manic editing and glancingly hardcore shots of a couple employing a strap-on to break out of their dull bedroom routine.”
