EPK - Days Together
Film Habit Presents
Written and Directed by Peter Monro
Starring Erin Anderson and Brian Soika
A frustrated and lost young woman escapes the city
on a road trip to Seattle and lets a musician friend
hitch a ride.
Alex is single and at a crossroads in her life as she
watches her close friends settle down, get married,
and have kids. A trail of numbing late night hook-ups
and useless advice leads her to Paul, a drummer ready
to leave Los Angeles for a simpler life. Eager to escape
the city for a while, Alex plans to drive up to Seattle to
visit her sister, and decides to let Paul hitch a ride. The
two new friends take on the road together, enjoying
each other’s company and affections until they realize
that they must both forge ahead on their own.
In the film, I wanted to capture a specific period in
a young person’s life without being heavy handed
or moralistic. I approached Alex’s story as more of
a scientific observer, without having a set ending or
conclusion. Rather than taking Alex through a series
of obstacles and having her come to some realization,
I wanted to establish a mood for her and follow her
on a journey. She feels unsatisfied and lost, but there
is still a lot of beauty around her. As a result, the film
is more impressionistic, colored with the images and
voices that I feel are very powerful and real, although
not always easy to understand.
