Directed by Michael O’Shea
“‘The Transfiguration’ is a difficult movie to classify, but one with an emotional depth that creeps up on you.” —Hollywood Reporter
Set in the housing projects of Rockaway, Long Island, this is the story of a shy teenage orphan who immerses himself in vampire mythology as protection from (and perhaps retaliation against) bullying. Michael O’Shea’s contemporary spin on the vampire genre adapts traditional horror into an examination of poverty, race, and class. 2016, US, 97 minutes.
