Whilst sharing happy memories over a dinner date, a couple slowly uncover the insecurities and vulnerability in their relationship.

‘Afters’ is an intimate portrait of a couple at breaking point. An unremarkable and everyday conversation quickly develops into something far more uncomfortable, exploring the awkwardness and subtlety of miscommunications, and fragility of repressed emotion in a relationship on the edge.

A unique split screen format offers a simultaneous observation of private emotions enacted in a public setting. This film comes from a series of unrelated short vignettes on love called ‘Portraits of a Utilitarian Love’, which explore fleeting moments of un-dramatic almost mundane events in life, highlighting the everyday and unglamorous side of love.
