Director Biography - Robert David Duncan

My core training in acting is from the Stella Adler Studio in New York. I love acting and filmmaking and Vancouver where I now live is a beautiful place to make films. I am interested in the dramas, delights, passions and heartbreaks that take place in everyday interactions (or lack thereof) between ordinary people. Most of my films have dealt with human-scale issues such as tough choices, love, dreams, hope and finding meaning and fun in life. I love an underdog story! My motto is don't let anything get in the way of telling a story that might uplift someone - film it with your smartphone if that's what you have, but get it done and share it with the world.

Director Statement

A chance spotting of a unique artist's mark in an inner-city alleyway leads an aging artist to suspect that a long-lost friend is not only still alive but might also be in town.

The narrative spine of this story is only 171 words organized into 50 short declarative sentences. Set against a striking backdrop of AI machine learning digital art imagery depicting inner-city alleyways, this is the story of a lifelong friendship between two people who lost each other for several decades.
