The Story Behind the film:
“A Cold Morning in November” is a film inspired by actual life experience. It was after my grandfather passed away, and the very sad consequences. Watching my grandmother trying to come to terms with her great loss, and at the same time spreading her love among her children and grandchildren. The ultimate self-sacrifice. This film touches base on the concept of ageing, loss, grief, and ultimately hope for a new beginning. November is indicative of death and hope for a new beginning. In this short film, reality is mixed with imagination in a very believable way.
Why One take?
The Film speaks about one moment in the life of the main character. A One-take film, you are living the moment with the character with no cuts.
