Until Dawn

Simon Lavoie —2004

Fiction / 21 min / Super 16 mm / 1.78:1 / colour

Night in the city. She asks for a little money for a coffee from a stranger walking by. He says he has none. He invites her to his house; she eventually accepts. What should not have taken place happens. Two lonely people cross paths, almost reach each other, then part. Dawn, as always, rises again.
