About this submission

This short was inspired by a previous relationship and influenced by shows like Joe Swanberg’s Easy, High Maintenance (and of course, Desiree Akhavan’s work). Aside from the specific issues and conversations it touches on that are specific to the queer community, which I haven’t yet seen explored on film before, I wanted to create a nuanced slice-of-life portrait of a relationship between two people who genuinely love each other and have chemistry, yet also glaring issues beneath the surface and struggle to communicate (even if they are trying to) and capture something that felt very true to my own experience.
