Lang Syne

Two old lovers cross paths on Christmas Eve while escaping on simple errands. They buy a 6 Pack and catch up on a whim, both questioning their life paths and if they should have remained together. Old familiar feelings and flaws resurface, adding a minor key to the Holiday backdrop. Inspired by Dan Fogelberg’s 1980 song “Same Old Lang Syne.”

Director Statement

Fogelberg's song has always struck me as a deeply sad and deeply nostalgic piece. Paired with the Holiday season it created a wonderful blend of emotions and aesthetics I wanted to explore, and I feel that we were able to capture the heart of the source material.
