Common Structure

A film by Anne Hollowday & Bill Kirstein

Amongst fragmentary recollections of friendship and the sublime, two friends explore changing priorities in a world that may quickly be slipping away.

Surreal and impulsive; their journey is tested by their changing priorities. When one challenges the other, we begin to realize that their reality may not be exactly what it seems.

Pushing the limits of style and narrative, the film loops back and forth in memory, endeavoring to explore the spirit of the sublime and what it means to truly feel alive.

I love to film things, tell stories, and read on the subway. I'm pretty sure blue whales are my power animal.
