Love Letter (13 mins)
Love Letter examines the fantasies and memories of Basil, an eight-year-old coping with the emotional anxieties triggered by the divorce of her parents. The young girl develops her own methods of self-soothing and in the process, stumbles upon a box of old love letters. In response to her transforming family structure, she forms a symbiotic relationship with an imaginary worm, enabling her to interpret a letter from her father to her mother. This boggling consultation is constantly interrupted by changing formal strategies as she accepts her inability to regain the notion of love in her changing familial system.
Featuring Molly McQuiod and Martina Plag
