Director Biography - derek frost

In addition to writing fiction and poetry, I create short films on iPhone. The films are highly personal and idiosyncratic meditations inspired in part by the work of my favorite director, Michelangelo Antonioni. I have a doctorate in comparative literature from the University of Connecticut.

Director Statement

This film, Pleamar, was shot on an iPhone in various locales and overlaid with narration. As this was a personal and extremely "low budget" film that I created entirely on my own, there is no press kit nor are there stills.
