This short film earned David Salas an award at the Two Short Nights Film Festival last year, and it’s no surprise – although the film is only just over 10 minutes long, it packs a punch.

When Frank’s wife collapses he does nothing. We stay with him for 24 hours as his wife remains on the floor, unmoving, and he slowly begins to fully understand the enormity of what has happened.

The cinematography is beautiful and haunting, and draws the audience into Frank’s world, alone and in shock. David Salas has a keen sense for how to draw emotion out of the moving image, and we look forward to seeing more of his work in the future and also to screening this beautiful short film again.

SCREENED AT: The Aeon Festival, August 2010
