Director statement

“All These Small Moments is a coming-of-age tale that invades the sexual exploration and uncertainty of our collective childhood. It’s at once romantic and pathetic, heartbreaking and comical. To me, this is a contemporary film with roots in the past. It borrows from a nostalgic color palette […] and is a world in which social media is purposely absent. It is a portrait of adolescence and aims to capture a time period that, if we make it out unscathed, defines us.”
