Cocktail, Dishes, Dinner

What occurs when communication is severed in a relationship?

By going back in time and using a highly visual approach to storytelling devoid of dialogue to heighten tension, Cocktail, Dishes, Dinner explores family dynamics that threaten to shatter under the pressure of seething miscommunication that results in passive aggressive confrontation.

Filmmaker’s statement

Telling stories has been a passion of mine from an early age.

I began as a writer and transitioned to filmmaking after my writing degree. Film is fascinating due to the ingredients at our disposal to deliver a story.

In this case, I went with a highly visual approach, allowing for sound, art direction and acting to take the lead, focusing on what is between the lines.
