Lydia and Roy navigate their codependent relationship in New York City.

Director’s Vision

As two people with diagnosed Anxiety Disorders, Kopp and I were inspired to explore the darker aspects of what this can look like in a relationship. Treading the line of emotional abuse, SLIP examines a couple that isn’t speaking the same language, and in their miscommunications conflate their intense passion with something romantic. I’m grateful to have been able to work on such a stimulating piece with two powerhouse actors who weren’t afraid to face an ugly side of the human condition.
