Touch

Fragments of a love story, composed of point-of-view shots.

Director’s Statement

The concept of this film stemmed from a simple class exercise I did at Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema (Brooklyn College). The requirement was to shoot a short love story without showing the actors’ faces. I wanted to portray a relationship in an oneiric combination of light and darkness, with a camera in constant motion. It is also inspired by the neighborhood I live in, Bushwick (Brooklyn). Although there was a short script, a lot of it was improvised on location. Lara Hemingway (the actress) and I had a wonderful time creating this together.
