Choices

“Choices” is an experimental film wherein seven different couples perform the same scene in the same space. All seven conversations are cut together into a single scene with fourteen characters. So many choices! The goal was to showcase as diverse a cast as possible including different genders, races, handicaps, and sexual orientations, turning a seeming innocuous conversation into an exploration on how we humans are the same yet unique.
