Synopsis It is a typical Thursday night and a man and woman are trapped inside an elevator after work. No one from the outside world tries to save them. Strangers to each other, the two wait. To pass time, they talk. They discuss mundane matters and insignificant subjects —from their jobs to their unrealistic dreams. As the conversation develops, an accidental relationship forms, all the while inside the elevator.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“It was a wonderful opportunity for me to meet with different directors of various backgrounds. It really pushed me to think about how I positioned myself as a film maker and what was unique about Asian films. The enthusiasm about film there motivated me to think more about the medium and what the major elements of a film were. The respect I received was beyond imagination and I am utterly satisfied with the whole trip.”

— Shared by Cheng Tak-yan Enoch, director of Before Friday after attending 15th Udine Far East Film Festival, under the sponsorship of NAE.
