A lovely short by New York-based writer-director Daniel Antebi. Sparked by a random encounter on the street, two exes relive the course of their relationship in the span of a single glance. While one might wish it possible to go back to the way things were, the moments they share exist only in the folds of time.

The loose, organic feel of the piece reflects how naturally the project came together. Shot in New York over the course of just two days, Antebi recalls:

“This idea was lingering in my mind for some time but I wasn’t sure how to manifest it. Early this year my friend Steven, the director of photography, told me he was free in seven days to shoot something. He said, all I have to do is write something. This percolating concept immediately came to my mind. I wrote it that night, called Melina and Iliana (who are great friends for jumping on last minute), and messaged Jim-E on insta to see if we could use his song.”
