The Middle is a short experimental drama that tells the story of Maggie, a young woman who moves to Toronto to make a life for herself. The Middle is told in an innovative split-screen format, the scenes in the left frame moving forwards in time, and the scenes in the right frame moving backwards in time. This film is Maggie’s story from the way she remembers it; a reflection of the memories and moments she pairs together in her mind. The split screen and non linear timeline explore a different mode of storytelling - allowing the audience to experience Maggie's journey with perspective and hindsight. The examination of memory in Maggie’s life offers a novel experience for the viewer that evokes a nostalgic and melancholic emotion - one that reminds us of the passage of time and moments that we carry with us.
