Some Days Are Better Than Others | 2011
Explores ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters who maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment. Katrina is a twenty-something reality TV enthusiast, video diarist and animal shelter worker whose world falls apart when she finds that those important to her are often not what she hopes they would be. Eli is a mid-30s slacker who could offer a thoroughly researched social critique explaining all the reasons why he shouldn't get a job; his experiences temping only reinforce his assertions. Camille is a socially handicapped thrift store attendant who spends her days sorting through the donated discards of other people's lives, and Otis is an 84-year-old eccentric filmmaker and inventor who strives to be recognized for his work.
