Lots of lovely shots in this short by Brooklyn-based writer-director Haya Waseem. Shot on 65mm film by cinematographer Christopher Lew, “The Ballad” explores the intimacy between real couples without comment or narrative influence. The cast and crew all volunteered their time over three days of shooting. Watch above and see full credits below!
