Invert the Vessel (2009)
32min · Short, Drama · 1 January 2009
June and Augie grew up together. Both playing on June's father's youth soccer team, they were like siblings. Now, in college, June is with Denton, and Augie is alone. When June's father falls ill, she goes to be with him at the hospital, leaving Augie with a potted plant close to her heart. In her absence, the inanimate plant serves as a receptacle for Augie's growing desire for June. Likewise, all three students are limited to communication mediated by cell-phones and e-mail, creating a crisis of intimacy where they face memories of the past just as they must try to form a future and find themselves in the present.
