Some Days Are Better Than Others
Filmfest 2010

SOME DAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS explores ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters that maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment. Katrina is a twenty-something reality TV enthusiast, video diarist and animal shelter worker, who is addicted to spying on her ex-boyfriend. Eli is a mid-30s slacker, who could offer a thoroughly researched social critique explaining all the reasons why he shouldn’t get a job. Camille is an anxiety-ridden thrift store attendant, who spends her days sorting through the donated discards of other people’s lives, and Otis is an 84-year-old eccentric filmmaker and inventor, who strives to be recognized for his work. SOME DAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS is a sad valentine to the forgotten discards of a throwaway society and a story about knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Production Notes
