Director Statement

A man. A woman. An afternoon that could make all the difference.

The Visit is an intimate short film told with exacting realism in the tradition of Sex, Lies, and Videotape and Scenes from a Marriage.

It is a story about arriving at the end of something once held dear, and who we become in the face of letting go.
