My favorite picture of you

3 minutes

A man looks back on life with his beloved wife – on the ebb and flow of memories

As we grow older, some memories linger while others recede, becoming flashes of action that flicker for a moment before disappearing. My Favorite Picture of You takes on a lifetime of memories in under four minutes, as an elderly husband and wife recall moments shared together over the years. At once a poignant love story and a rumination on the passage of time, the film takes us on a journey through the past, celebrating memories both special and mundane, and lamenting those that have been lost.

Director: Dan Lindsay, TJ Martin
