Highlights on Without, a short film by Joseph Hefner
Without is a short sapphic drama written and directed by Joseph Hefner. Oblivious to their close proximity to one another, two women reflect on a brief connection they shared six months earlier. Danielle and Emily, two very different young women, share a night together at a hotel. Agreeing to remain anonymous to one another, they reluctantly separate. Few weeks later, they both revisit the hotel under vastly distinctive circumstances, unaware of their common past. Emily and Danielle are portrayed by Elizabeth Lail and Noelle Franco.
