"Splitscreen: A Love Story" shows a picture of what love looks like today.
In the compelling, quirky narrative written by director James W. Griffith, we are introduced to the lives of two people — one living in New York, the other in Paris.
These two people are in a long-distance relationship.
We see the parallels of their daily rituals — coffee, newspapers, subways — and although the unseen couple does not participate in them together, they are still slices of life they somehow share.
The film was shot entirely on a Nokia N8 phone.
The film won the 2011 Nokia Shorts film competition.
It's an understated, sweet look at the way people can be close, despite geographical distance.
