The Neighbor's Window

posted by Jason Kottke Feb 17, 2020

From filmmaker Marshall Curry, The Neighbor's Window is a poignant short film about the odd relationships you can sometimes form with your neighbors in big cities, even if you never meet in real life.

For real! Do they have jobs? Or clothes? All they do is host dance parties and sleep 'til noon and screw.

This film recently won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film. (via open culture)

Update: I forgot to mention that this film was based on a true story told by Diane Weipert on the Love + Radio podcast. Somewhat randomly, the film's husband and wife ended up looking a lot like Weipert and her partner. (via @BenHoste)
