Director’s Statement

Sometimes we hurt the people we love. Sometimes we do because of fear.

Times Left is a short film about two couples of friends. They both have secrets. And they both end up misunderstading their own reciprocal reasons.

Finding the strenght to really listen is hard. Technology doesn’t help. The only way to transform and save a friendship is putting your pride aside and make the first step.
