Developing from its humble beginnings as a directing/acting exercise into a fully blown film over several drafts, Shuchi Talati’s well observed short Mae and Ash is an insightful tale about how we lie in love, to each other and ourselves. Shuchi joins us to discuss the inspiration and terror to be found at film school and the temperamental nature of cockroach actors.
Mae and Ash – Shuchi Talati (2012)
‘Mae and Ash’ is the story of a young couple navigating an open relationship. It all seems to work until the single rule — never meet the ‘others’ — is broken. This results in an uncomfortable, revelatory and funny breakfast-for-three.
While making it I really didn’t know if anyone would be interested in watching it?
