National Short and Medium-Length Competition

The Longest Day of the Year Frank Varga Jr.

Frank Varga Jr. captures the strange poetry of returning home in summer. The charm of humdrum suburbia is shot with melancholic affection: the inground pool, lazy sunny days, the twinge of guilt felt when lounging as the elders renovate, and family evenings on the patio once the sun sets. Fixed and long shots with sparse narration evoke the slowness of the longest day of the year; but more so, they mark the distance between the filmmaker and what he shares and the anxiety it brings. The distance between childhood and adult life, between countries, between generations, between self and other.
