“From a letter to a friend” documents a desperate need. Shot exclusively with a 500mm fixed telephoto lens, the film explores the simultaneous distance and closeness of interacting with another. The inevitable failures of communication, the impossibility of translation, and despite it all, our unceasing, absolute need for companionship. Language can only do so much. We have to do the everything else.
