The Things I Couldn’t Say

Zoe and Chris are at the same party. When they find themselves alone all they can seem to talk about is their most recent failed relationships.

Filmmaker’s statement

After running into my ex at a friend’s birthday (and feeling all eyes on us as we awkwardly greeted each other) I began to wonder what it would be like to re-meet him and divulge everything I hadn’t said while we were together.

With a number of very supportive (and talented) friends, the story was brought to life.

Upon watching the final product, my ex remarked, “I don’t get it.” Go figure.
