Director Statement

The Silence Between started with a specific feeling/mood: The sense of intense regret and sadness that can loom over someone when they are alone. Such a feeling informed everything for me directorially: While watching this film, I aspired for it to be as sensorial/experiential for the viewer as possible, while still maintaining a narrative through-line. So while it may be based on menial, mundane tasks, I feel like it’s about the aftermath, the feeling of melancholy and uncertainty that percolates through all the small, in-between moments of one’s various low points in life.
