At Love in Fall Productions (the entertainment division of Anthony C. Leong Drugs Ltd.), we believe in the ideal expressed above. Had William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, or Samuel Beckett been born today, would they be screenwriters, and if so, what kinds of films would they write?
Love in Fall Productions strives to make literate films that speak to the audience on many levels and encourage reflection on universal themes. Through the use of narrative techniques with a basis in literature, our films are truly 'intellectual puzzles' that require active participation of the viewer to bring with them their own experience in order to uncover the themes being expressed.
It's like falling in love, only in reverse.
Production Date July 1987 Genre Short film Running Time 13 minutes Format VHS The Guy William Chung The Girl Howcy Yeung The Subconscious Chris Theis Cameras Anthony Leong, Richard Price Written by Anthony Leong, William Chung Produced by Anthony Leong, William Chung Directed by Anthony Leong, William Chung
The Guy (William Chung), after having rushed down to the University of Toronto for a lab that has just been cancelled, sits alone in a student lounge and reflects on an acceptance letter to Oxford, belonging to his girlfriend. In a voice-over, we hear an argument between him and the Girl (Howcy Yeung)-- she is leaving and he is reluctant to let her go. The Guy falls asleep and soon wakes up to find that everyone around him is 'frozen'. After finding himself unable to rouse any of them from their trance-like state, he finds himself pursued by a figure in white, the Subconscious (Chris Theis). Eventually he is cornered and the Subconcious tells him, "let her go, it's over". He wakes up and drives off to the airport to catch up with his girlfriend, reminiscing about their relationship as he drives. He catches up with her just as she is about to enter the gate. He embraces her one last time, and returns the acceptance letter back to her. As the plane takes off, the Guy watches from the edge of the airfield.
It's easy to say when a relationship ends, but how do you know when one begins?
