UF-1A

Between You and Me, a film that explores the nature of a relationship. Watch together, if there is a together. If not, imagine.

Sometimes I imagine my greatest fear to be that you will not see what I see. That the rich and profound nature of all encounters sit waiting patiently to be recognized. To be useful to the experience of our lives.

And sometimes I imagine my films to be too gentle, leading me to feel compelled to shout from the rooftops what appears to be so very important. But then again, I have an idea that shouting and profound sit uncomfortably together in the same sentence. In which case raising my voice would be inappropriate.

And, I know that it’s not my responsibility to make anyone see anything. If I do hold any responsibility, it is simply to share what I see of people. Of what I see in people.

So know this. This film seems important to me. And my hope is that you can see what I see in the space between its two subjects, Ed and Merle.

As ever, I hope you catch yourself reflected. I hope you are left wondering, lost in ‘what if’.

Postscript. I never set out to make this. I had set out to catch Ed and Merle on camera in a long form film as a family legacy. A piece of filmic art that might live for generations to come.

But in our time together, ‘Between You and Me’ seemed so very obvious. A contribution to what relationship might become.

Note : I do make PORTRAITS on ‘commission’.
