WE NEED TO TALK
Written & Directed by DAVID MCCRACKEN
Produced at the University of Southern California
5 min. | Comedy, Drama
A man and a woman who secretly hate each other are on the cusp of getting engaged.
I’ve always been fascinated with the miseries people endure to prevent loneliness. They’ll deceive themselves and everyone else around them to save face and avoid confrontation and conflict. Each of the two characters in this short knows exactly how he/she feels and can articulate those emotions perfectly, but they’ve each created a perfectly delusional world for themselves from which they will never escape.
