The Residue of a Relationship (2017)
The Residue of a Relationship is a short film that looks at the leftovers of love and tries to piece together what it all means. It follows a real-world love story from its inception through to a conclusion in a thoroughly modern tale of romance in the 21st century. Filmmaker Brett Chapman spent his whole life obsessed with the movies, so when he had a chance encounter with a Swedish girl in a Dutch hostel he pulled out his camera and began to bring to life the movies he’d always admired. Lovingly crafted with a handmade aesthetic, The Residue of a Relationship is a candid love story un-like any other, pulling on elements of documentary filmmaking and stitching them together with some of the most recognisable cornerstones of romantic cinema. A coming of age story for a generation raised on John Hughes and Cameron Crowe movies, The Residue of a Relationship is a funny and heartwarming tale about the lessons we learn from the things that people leave behind.
