Since the coronavirus pandemic started, there have been many turns of phrase that have been repeated ad nasueum. One of those is the well-intentioned (or is it?) phrase "We Are All In This Together." I decided to look at those words and think about things a bit more intimately, changing it to "We Are In This Together." These stories are about partnerships: marriage, significant others, and the like. As with the short film block about families, you will see that some films will address this phrase with irony, and others will address it with sincerity. All of them use human bonds as the center of either anxiety or hope.

A miserable man, unhappy with his dull married life, descends into a world of dark hallucinations, and meets an entity that might give him a chance to experience pleasure.

"A very hypnotic film with powerful yet discreet sound design. I felt quite intrigued by it and looked forward to understand what the filmmaker was trying to say." -Programmer Rebekah Fieschi
