“A tenderly dramatic and gently loopy Brooklyn street poem.” – THE NEW YORKER
“A timeless ode to New York City.” – INDIEWIRE
In PERSON TO PERSON, a record collector hustles for a big score while his heartbroken roommate tries to erase a terrible mistake, a teenager bears witness to her best friend’s new relationship, and a rookie reporter, alongside her demanding supervisor, chases the clues of a murder case involving a life-weary clock shop owner.
Shot entirely in 16mm, PERSON TO PERSON effortlessly humanizes its characters, invoking an earnest realism in the performances of its ensemble cast: Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Michaela Watkins, and newcomer Bene Coopersmith. Defa demonstrates his aptitude for honest storytelling as he explores the absurdity and challenges of forging human connections.
