An Apology

by Danielle Agami


Loading GIF 3.gif

An Apology follows a man who has lost touch with what matters most — real human connection. As he goes through the motions of furniture shopping, we get a glimpse into his imagination, filled with movement and dance. Danielle Agami's narration tackles emotions that stem from our collective isolation, what it means to be an immigrant artist in America, and highlights the spiritual sacrifices we make when we cling to damaging ideals dictated by modern society.

words from the filmmaker

I feel like the film tells why it was important to me.

why we love this film

Abstractness meets technique, with gorgeous use of space, composition, and color.
