Festival starts in


As she prepares to move to another city to pursue her studies, Gemma becomes increasingly preoccupied with her friend's distant and evasive behaviour since their friendship took an unexpected romantic turn. His silence forces her to evaluate her feelings and confront him before her departure.

French with English subtitles.

Director's Statement:

This film is a synthesis of personal observations, experiences, and reflections on the intricacies and ambiguities when it comes to love and friendship. It explores the opaqueness that often defines the landscape of modern love, where desires and intentions are cruelly volatile and usually left unsaid. I wanted to frame the often- inconclusive nature of relationships and life in general, and present this ephemerality as something meaningful and poetic.
