Featuring Thea Green Lundberg and Jenny Ellegård
Told from the perspective of Sofia (Thea Green Lundberg), a queer woman discovering and asserting who she is as a young adult, ‘The Way Things End’ is a poetic short film about two friends who are coming to terms with the painful truth that a shift in perspective can sometimes end a friendship. We hear Sofia’s emotional response to the friendship breakup, as she reflects on the conflict that has come between her and Isabel (Jenny Ellegård), her former ride-or-die; this internal voice is filled with sadness, guilt and confusion. Gradually Sofia begins to remember parts of the friendship that were good and honest, as she finds a new perspective; forgiveness.
On “The Way Things End” Anna wanted a very naturalistic feel over the film. The look we decided on was a dim and soft grade. We gave it a slight tint of blue and green, with not a lot of contrast.
