Hold the Night

Two lovers attempt to keep their fire burning while running out of food and cigarettes, dreaming of trips to Paris, and trying to pretend it’s not the end of the world.

Director’s Statement

I liked the idea of accelerating a relationship by pre-maturely pushing people together and putting them under pressure. And I wanted to do something where the basic scenes are repeated but we see how the characters evolve from the changes in those scenes. I don’t know why it’s so French… I guess they’re in the least romantic situation I could think of and a romanticized, fantasy version of Paris is the polar opposite.
