middle mind project

El Profe (The Professor) is a loose adaptation of a scene in the book 'White Noise' by Don Delillo. A young man (Michael) taking lessons at his tutors (Howard) home learns a lot more about his professor then the actual lesson he was there for. Inspired by the dry comedy and warm-hearted humanism in the work of Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki, the short captures a moment between two, seemingly, different people longing for the same thing, to connect with others.
