Late – Directors Vision


I’m always interested in the dance of intimacy between people: the give and take, the reaching out and withdrawing, the risking and the hiding. This can happen between close friends and family, and, as is the case with LATE, it can happen between strangers. Why can an encounter between strangers have high stakes? Is it rejection we fear? We meet someone new and think that they, above all people, can give us the feeling of acceptance we want? Whatever the reason, the stakes are high in LATE as our two main characters try to make a connection in the few minutes of stolen time they create by being late for their next appointment. And my hope isn’t so much to comment on how an encounter like this should go, but rather to observe and participate in the ways that we, in our own flawed ways, reach out for the Other. – Jason R. Goode
