YOUNG LOVE IN A DIRTY PLACE

 

A girl explores multiple ways of closing the door to save their first relationship crisis.

 

We wanted to create a youthful story in depressing surroundings remembering how it was when the first love blurs everything around you. The analog film helped us to capture the contrast between colorful highlights of the young couple and the grim post-soviet environment that reminds about the dirty dumpster called routine.
