This is a short film I made in 1992 while I was an exchange student in the film production program at San Francisco State University. (16 mm, color, 13 minutes, no dialogue.)
Yeah, I know, the opening titles look terrible, but hey, they were homemade, and we didn't have computers to do the job then. I was too poor to have them redone professionally. I could edit them in iMovie but for the sake of nostalgia, I decided to leave them in their original format.
Façade is a film about privacy and voyeurism that takes place between two women who observe each other from their facing apartment windows. Every night, when the sun goes down and lights turn on in the windows of city homes, a young woman sits at her desk facing a window and writes. One night her usual concentration is disturbed by a light in the window from the building across from her, where another woman is moving into a vacant apartment. The two women start to interact, and what begins as an innocent game of window hide and seek turns to a more revealing relationship.
