Dance is a universal language. With this in mind, filmmaker/choreographer William Lu explores the idea of using dance and movement as the dialogs in a narrative film about love, longing and loss. STILL tells a story of two souls who are bound in a cycle of uncertainty . Disjointed dialogues, empty embraces, and opposing desires impede the young man's waking hours as he struggles to come to terms with his reality. Is it just another mundane day, or is she merely pieces of his memory? Is he ready to embrace her or has he found enough courage to let go?
