Film Summary

Black Lens | 1:26 | 2016 | USA | | View Website

It's New Year's Eve and an unnamed Uber driver (a remarkable performance from Dorian Missick) is checking in for the busiest day of the year. Over the course of the evening and his numerous fares, he'll witness couples falling in and out of love, belligerent police officers, and solo passengers; all of these brief interactions exacerbating his own growing anxiety in the face of recent life-changing news. Shot entirely on an iPhone 6s (the first movie ever to do so!), Matthew Cherry's intimate and gripping drama combines naturalistic performance with unobtrusive camerawork to tell a very modern story of life and love.
