ADAM (WITH AN EYE)
Adam has embarked on an interstellar exploration, while his partner’s life continues on Earth. With the time and space between them, the lovers struggle to stay in touch, until one day she discovered something that Adam has secretly left behind.
I was so incredibility moved by ADAM (WITH AN EYE). Filmmaker Derrick Duan packs more emotional punch in 5 minutes than many filmmakers can do with twenty. The film has a timeless quality and yet, the isolation-induced loneliness it explores is indicative of the moment we are living in. Two characters. Missing each other. Apart from each other because society needed them to be. It’s a beautiful film and I can’t share it with enough people.
