“Love Letters” is an experimental short film created from real correspondence and interviews during the first world war, and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles, which ended the conflict.
A couple sends each other messages across an ocean during the largest and most violent conflict the world had known. The unnamed woman copes with the horrors of a military hospital in the US while her fiancee faces despair in the trenches of Europe.
The short is filmed with contemporary, abstract setting and costume because the content is timeless. Love is love and war is hell. Produced in the United States of America by Eric Ryan, as a tribute to the men and women who sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom, and on whose shoulders our democracy stands.
Directed by Eric Ryan and Alexa Hann (USA)
