These Things Never Last follows Olivia and James, a young couple who are forced into a long distance relationship by new border regulations and rising socio-political tensions in their respective countries. They use technology to communicate as they struggle to stay together as the world falls apart around them.
The film is a compilation of vignettes made up of FaceTime conversations between the couple over the course of a year of forced separation. Originally conceived as a web series, this is a condensed version of the series edited specially for this festival.
The film was written and filmed in early 2016 during the lead up to the UK Referendum and the 2016 US Presidential election. The film is a response to the disturbing socio-political trends we've noticed leading up to these votes and after them.
