Rooftop Films: Love And Longing
Saturday, August 11, 2007

Sweet films about sad hearts: romantic short films in a romantic setting.

Length: 2 hrs 00 mins
Intermission: Yes
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Desire glows like hot coals; passion burns like a fire. Heartbreak is like the sound of shattering glass; depression like walking on it. But longing is something more ineffable, hard to identify or even locate. Longing could be hidden in the weeds of former bomb testing fields, in the stories you tell to disguise your real life (Bomb); or it could be undiscovered, under the covers and in mock battlefield games (Peace Talk). Longing could be defined as the things you can’t quite say when you finally get to talk to her (The Back of her Head), or it could be the feeling that slowly slips away the next day (The Morning Sun). You can look down romantically named alleys (The A-Z of Love) or post carefully photoshopped internet messages (A Valentine to Perfect Strangers), try to wrap it up and ship it back home, but longing will slip away like love letters written in clouds (Women of Japan). The films in this program point a camera into the shadows of our hearts and give voice to this inexpressible feeling.
