| Dye Red |
Dye Red was the Best Experimental Narrative Short Film at the 51st Nashville Film Festival. Inspired by the director’s relationships with several roommates over the years of her life, the short is a dark but graceful slice-of-life look at the lives of long-time roommates Celeste and Aurora. It explores ideas of sharing, not just a space, but also each other’s things, attention, and time. A connection that so easily extends to every intimate human relationship.
