Three old friends meet for an afternoon of furniture moving, petty theft, and fortune telling. But when the tea leaves are read, a hint of menace is predicted before the day is over.
Director's Statement Collapse
Several unique sensibilities came together to create After June, and I'm proud of the acting, the writing, and the look of it. But I think I'm most proud of the collaborative spirit shared by a group of people who said, "Let's tell a story about old friends and bad decisions, and let's do it with a balanced frame that lets the story unfold in a genuine way." I'm proud of that spirit, and I think it shows in the film. During the course of shooting, I learned something about blocking, something about patience, and something about snow. A blizzard knocked out a day of shooting, but the first flakes of the storm made for a great closing shot.
