Set in Newfoundland in 1987, Black Conflux is a dreamy account of two young lives on a fateful collision course. Fifteen-year-old Jackie is navigating from vulnerable adolescence to impending adulthood, leading her toward Dennis, a loner kept company by delusional fantasies of adoring women at his beck and call. The film is a narrative expansion of Nicole Dorsey’s short film Dennis, which played RiverRun in 2015.  Nicole will also be involved with RiverRun this year as a member of the Narrative Shorts jury, a category in which her film Ivadelle was awarded Best Narrative Short during our 2010 Festival.
