Too Close


Andrea alone builds a new safe life for her two children after sending her ex-abusive partner to prison. However, her struggles are constantly made more diffcult by the conservative community in which she lives, and which questions her word.


Andrea could be anybody’s mother, and her daughter could be anybody’s sister or friend (…). I wanted the story to capture the darkness of the past, but also, to have lots of light and inspiration thanks to their perseverance. I feel fortunate that my characters also felt the urge to tell their story this way, and thus, the camera became a part of their healing process.” Director statement – flmfreeway
