Director Statement

Drift is a fictional tale inspired by an actual coincidence: Returning to NY after many years, I discovered late one night when opening my old address book, that I had unwittingly rented the apartment of a friend who had passed a few years before.

This cosmic coincidence compelled me to explore the notions of lost friendship, love, desire and death.
