Award Screening: Best Actor, US Narrative Competition: One Percent More Humid

Iris (Juno Temple) and Catherine (Julia Garner), college –age childhood friends, reunite for a humid New England Summer to help each other cope with the unimaginable. As they attempt to enjoy the usual vacation hijinks- parties and skinny-dipping and sexual adventure- a shared trauma in their past becomes increasingly difficult to suppress. As the hot summer wears on, the two young women continue to be haunted by their memories, and find that their shared experience begins to drive them even further apart. Each seeks refuge in a forbidden affair- Catherine to an former crush turned enemy, and Iris to her older, married college advisor at a crossroads of his own (Alessandro Nivola).

One Percent More Humid is a sun-soaked, atmospheric coming-of-age tale of two young women looking to free themselves from distractions, to repair their friendship, and help each other reach the other side of grief.
