I Think About You Every Day

21-year old friends exchange impassioned emails over a summer of separation. Their correspondence is brought to life by two dancers in an unfinished apartment building. A meditative, autobiographical portrait tinged with longing and loss.

Director Statement

I Think About You Every Day began as a Master's thesis project investigating female friendship and its representation on film. The production and post-production was completed after my studies.

I used my personal archive of friendship as a starting point: intimate emails written between a friend and I from over 10 years ago. During a self-directed residency in Lithuania, I worked with two dancers to translate this written correspondence into language expressed through the body. The film explores a passionate, often humorous relationship between friends, and the ways geographical-temporal distance can offer new possibilities for deep intimacy.
