About this submission
In the heat of summer, a group of friends chronicle a college graduate's strange friendship with his imaginary friend. Conversations with each millennial reveal the value of belonging, fear of loneliness, and differing opinions of growing up during their friend's last adolescent summer. Illustrated through documentary footage taken of the boys' lives throughout 2019 summer months, this personal documentary discusses one boy's coping mechanism of fighting a fundamental fear of leaving the social aspects of higher education behind.
As a female director-dp, I wanted to explore the vulnerability of male counterparts and relationships through authentic interviews and intimate cinematography.
