Strawberries

A young girl with unique abilities and her enigmatic caretaker await a long expected call. His agenda may divide them forever.

Strawberries is a short scene study about a young girl with unique powers and her caretaker, an enigmatic man with an unknown agenda. Set in a not too distant future, the film was designed not as a complete narrative, but rather as a glimpse into a larger story and world. With minimal dialogue, the short uses rich textures, cinematography and, pacing to help convey the story.

“My goal was to create a sense of unease. Rather than telling a straightforward narrative, my focus was on bringing a sense of depth and truth to the alternate reality where the story unfolds, leaving the audience to speculate about the nature of this world, what has brought our characters into this moment, and how this scene fits into a large tale.”
