Despondent Divorcee

Short Film (Full Length) – 1995

PG
Parental Guidance
The chance that every photographer dreams of — to be in the right place at the right time — fell into my lap ...
– Photographer Russell Corgi, on the original context
Despondent Divorcee (1996) and This Film is a Dog (1997) are both driven by aloof and cool male characters that resist the movements of fate with seemingly sincere actions to improve their lots, only to have their motives weighted by a blind selfishness that steers them to conclusions filled with more pain than they began with. In short, they are attracted to fates worse than death.
– Hussain Currimbhoy, in a February 2007 interview with Jonathan Ogilvie, Senses of Cinema
