The film centers on a young woman who is a mother of four and substitute teacher dealing with a drug habit, among other problems. She visits a psychiatrist to unravel the meaning behind her dreams, as “Busby Berkeley, Cirque de Soleil, Circus freaks, and human farm animals all make appearances in this hallucinogenic tale of love and comeuppance,” according to the film’s synopsis.
“Yellow” stars Heather Wahlquist, Sienna Miller, Max Thieriot and Ray Liotta. Cassavetes also co-wrote the script alongside Wahlquist.
The SXSW festival runs from March 8-17, with the film portion taking place March 8-16.
