Teenage strife: “I feel like I’m up against time."
Time and love become elusive forces in Charlotte Zhang’s glimpse into the life of a young Los Angelean. We are invited to listen in on the protagonist’s simultaneously murky and revealing conversations with their mother and best friend. Their mother’s advice, “you’re not really stuck … just be patient," is paralleled by the film's own static frames and unhurried pacing. To drive the point home, musical intermissions unfold in contrast with the background groan of LA’s relentless highway traffic.
This screening is part of We Love You, a multidisciplinary programme on love beyond the romantic and the self that is running from September to December, 2019.
