a film by Michael Achtman (22 mins.)

Anna, a woman who is chronically ill, is visited by Doreen, a door-to-door proselytizer who makes herself at home and stays the day, slowly defrosting her non-welcome. Together they walk in the park, bake a cake and watch an Ingmar Bergman film. Both women are blind, played by blind actors Alex Bulmer and Margo Cargill in this existential comedy.

Written and Directed by Michael Achtman. With Alex Bulmer as Anna and Margo Cargill as Doreen. Producer Ҫağlar Kimyoncu. Directors of Photography Juan Soto & Zeynep Dağli Sound Design Mustafa Bal
