WHY DO I STAND HERE
SHORT FILM (2022)
Director / Writer / Co-Producer
Runtime: 3 minutes
Created for TedX Sydney
When Vincent, an older man suffering with dementia, is faced with the confronting memories of his late wife, he is pulled through an array of distorted and unreliable memories from an epic love he shared with her. We experience his disorientated and slightly haunting mind as we dive into a web of conflicting and intertwined memories. He then is brought back to the present just to relive the loss of his late wife as if it were the first time experiencing it.
