A new short film explores the impact of dating and distance on gay love.
See You Soon, a film by Tyler Rabinowitz, stars James Cusati-Moyer (Slave Play) and Jonny Beauchamp (Kate Keene) as Vincent and Anthony, men on the opposite sides of the country who fall for one another after meeting on a dating app.
The short was created before stay-at-home orders, but it resonates in a time when queer people are increasingly meeting, conversing, and falling in love through digital spaces.
The film was inspired by a "pivotal moment" in the life of Rabinowitz, who fell for a person on a dating app in his mid-20s and discovered "the palpable connection we formed despite the distance, time, and reality separating us."
"My hope is that audiences will come away from the film feeling like they’ve known Vincent and Anthony forever, the same way they felt when they first started talking online," he said in a statement.
See You Soon premiered this week on Short of the Week. Watch it below.
