Filmmaker’s statement

Two Ladies is a vignette of a young woman who’s supposed to be having fun but ends up in a brief period of waiting and separation.

The idea came from the desire to see two women talking from a minimalist approach with film.

James Joyce’s Two Gallants, a short story about two sailors who exploit women to enjoy their lives, also influenced the film.
