Drift - directed by Jim Vendiola
Drift is a visually unconventional, character-based story about the chance encounter between two twenty-something strangers: one of whom places an online ad, to which the other responds. During a phone conversation they make a headlong and somewhat mysterious decision to meet one another. This occurs on a Tuesday morning, with both strangers consciously abandoning their respective nine-to-five jobs for the whole day. DRIFT is a film largely about sudden, temporary autonomy. A single day made free and unpredictable.
