A couple overcomes physical separation by creating their own imaginative space in this short passion project by writer-director Reinis Spaile (previously featured here). Shot in New York last autumn, Spaile explains his approach and use of 16mm film:

“We used high ISO to be able to shoot in low key environments and played with colorful spills. We wanted the image to have a ‘wet’ feel to highlight lonely environments of both characters. The analogue film to me is an irreplaceable medium. You can always see the physicality in the grain and textures. Above all it has this specific workflow — it magnifies the moment you are about to shoot and adds an additional spark for the crew and cast members.”
