SHORT NARRATIVE

A Broken Appointment

Dir. Kaleb D’Aguilar • United Kingdom, 3 min.

A vignette. A relationship. A rise and fall. Set to the backdrop of Epilogue by Kei Miller, A Broken Appointment explores the dynamic of closeting within a young gay relationship, and how “hiding in the dark” may lead to a destructive end. At the same time, Miller’s poetry offers optimism for the ability of a relationship to rise again after an unfortunate end.
