Endless Days of Bertolucci

Endless Days of Bertolucci not only ponders upon the meaning of finding love and affection in virtual spaces, but its transition into the real world. Through an encounter between two young individuals during a mellow, timeless summer, the short movie challenges itself through the contrast of audio and visual. It is this disparity where we find ourselves searching for love in virtual spaces: How we present ourselves through words and pictures on dating apps seldomly is an accurate depiction of our true selves, if not our best version of it. By stepping out of the chat room, the virtual shell is inevitably being left there.
