A romantic fantasy about love, cake and New York City.
A filmmaker from New Zealand meets a beautiful Russian woman on the subway to Coney Island. He falls in love with her and convinces her to make a film of their ensuing affair.
Supported by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand, the Harriet Friedlander Residency sent Florian to New York for as long as $80,000 would last him.
The film, shot over three months in New York City, plays with the idea of pick-a-path stories from the 1980's and 90's where the audience can influence the direction of the story. The line between documentary and fantasy is purposefully blurred, with the audience left unsure what is real and what is acting.
