Who We Are 'Book At Bedtime/Daydream' by Novemba
This introductory short film to the new musical project Who We Are - directed by London-based Australian directing duo Novemba, making their music project debut - explores the everyday heartbreak of being a parent and the deep complex emotions lurking beneath the surface.
A creative collaboration between music, film and dance, this is fully realized by two debut Who We Are songs as the short film’s soundtrack – Book At Bedtime and Daydream – as well as Novemba’s signature visual style and enthralling choreographed performances by Dickson Mbi.
Taking place in intimate, familiar settings, the overarching focus of the short film is on the unique pieces of raw, emotional expression from two individual characters: a father who is grappling with the difficulties that come with being a newly single parent, separated from his infant child; and a mother who faces unbearable tension and hostility from her teenage daughter, played by Chloe Hearn.
It's a powerful two-parter, with outstanding performances by the dancers, deftly directed by Novemba.
