A little party in a flat; an older couple and a young man. The relationships are initially unclear but there are signs that this seemingly relaxed affair is tinged with melancholy. An encounter over wine and savoury snacks opens old wounds, but also brings unexpected relief.
A little party in a flat; an older couple and a young man. The relationships are initially unclear but there are signs that this seemingly relaxed affair is tinged with melancholy. An encounter over wine and savoury snacks and a few anecdotes from a distinguished orchestral musician open old wounds, but also bring unexpected relief. This carefully punctuated, site-specific microdrama was shot and produced by the Alfred Bouriana Film Company without any official funding; the entire crew also waived their fees.
