It’s little over three years since director Denise Hauser joined us for an interview about her mixed-media short Copy City, so it’s a long overdue pleasure to welcome her back to DN for a discussion about her mail order boyfriend short Return to Sender.
Return to Sender (2011)
A female scientist lives a lonely and isolated life on the coast of Greenland studying ice crystals. She is looking for the perfect partner to keep her company under such harsh conditions. One day, she discovers a website which enables her to design her perfect match. She places an order and receives a tiny parcel in which she finds a small laboratory kit. She intends to grow her perfect match, but there is a possibility that things may go wrong.
It’s kind of a bit like MacGyver style, you just work with what you have and try to have fun with it.
