Directed by Lyle Pisio (Canada, Animation, 9 mins, DC Premiere, 2009)

Loneliness, desire, love, hesitation, miscommunication, fear, and loss with a touch of alcoholism for comic relief. Trevor and Martha see each other across a dingy bar and fall in love. The couples shyness is only overcome in a mutual dream where their shadows dance together. Inspired by the song 'The Empress' by the Montreal band BRIGA, the film is about the first hesitant motions of meeting and the fragility of falling in love
