Undeterred by a test of patience, a young girl pursues her a camera fixer who is just unmoved by the urgencies of the world.
She persists. She earns a new friend and teaches him lessons in empathy, patience and the human touch.
For a generation of selfie-takers, insta-satisfaction, and throwaway hashtag comments, a ‘slow and steady’ and one-tracked approach to relationships is an unproductive use of resources.
But like developing a reel of film, or learning how to use (or fix) a old manual camera, the pleasure derived from a deliberate process is unmistakable.
Although it’s fiction, the romance in this short film is about just that, exactly.
Sometimes, love takes time, but most of the time, it’s just worth it.
