Bear & Stella is a lucid fever-dream of a short where Bear confronts his estranged girlfriend, who's made a new life for herself in the back of a broken Crown Vic. Stella is trying to move forward with her life, while Bear is grasping for scraps of the past. Bear & Stella is ultimately about two people headed in different directions, but for a few moments, have to confront each other. The style and language is decidedly magical realism, and based on the arguments you've had that leave you asking "the fuck was that?" 

Shot on vintage anamorphic lenses at a farm in Chatham, NY. Written and Directed by John MacDonald and photographed by William Hart (Lead & Copper) with actors Carter Hudson (Snowfall) and Keilly McQuail (Younger).
