Note from the Director: Connor Allen Smith
2020 was terrible. This isn't a radical statement. Though, I've been fortunate & privileged to be only inconvenienced by the pandemic. Inside these inconveniences though, they could feel cataclysmic–especially within relationships. Feeling my back against a wall, I did what a filmmaker does: make a film. "Self Portrait," inspired by Hong Sang-Soo's roman à clef work, looks to provide a snapshot of the ups-and-downs as Time moves through a young Chicago couple in 2020.
