Despite The Distance, This Couple's Lives Run Parallel. The Result Is Beautiful.

A modern love story.

"Splitscreen: A Love Story" shows a picture of what love looks like today.


In the compelling, quirky narrative written by director James W. Griffith, we are introduced to the lives of two people — one living in New York, the other in Paris. 

These two people are in a long-distance relationship.

We see the parallels of their daily rituals — coffee, newspapers, subways — and although the unseen couple does not participate in them together, they are still slices of life they somehow share.

The film was shot entirely on a Nokia N8 phone.

It's an understated, sweet look at the way people can be close, despite geographical distance.
