The Films

Bad At Small Talk

Viktor Horvath | US | 9

Bad At Small Talk is about those uncomfortable, widely accepted social situations where two people feel forced to engage in light conversation. Some are simply shy or awkward, others totally oblivious. They try to power through, but the interactions just get more uncomfortable the longer they drag on. They end up in a confusing back and forth of misaligned and delayed reactions, neither of them getting out more than a couple syllables at a time.
