A short film about what romance means in a world on pause.
Dir. Naomi Christie | 2022 | 14 min
The new world that emerged in March of 2020 led to massive societal upheaval, and shifting standards of how relationships begin and develop. Some couples entered quickly into a partnership, while others were separated for long periods, struggling to connect over video chats. Christie’s film is carried by its intimacy and sense of reflection; there’s a longing quality that pervades both its spontaneous connections and difficult separations. - Kentucker Audley, NoBudge
