The moments before: Sarah Bahbah releases new short film titled ‘I_________YOU’

Sarah Bahbah

The moments before those three big words – I love you. The implications are always huge, going from one end of the spectrum to another in a relationship, is a risk. This is something Sarah Bahbah understands very well, in fact she's made a movie out of it. Her latest work, a four minute short film titled  I_________YOU explores the very unique emotions one journey's through before saying "I love you" for the first time.

 

What do we know about the film so far?

As previously stated, the film will look at the time before one says "I love you" for the first time. In a short clip the audience is taken on a self confessed journey of flurrying emotions. With narrator Nailea Devora delving deep into the human experience of fear and anguish in being vulnerable.

Devora says "More people are heartbroken than they are whole. I was one of them, maybe I still am. But then, there was you,” she continues. “Ugh, of course, you came when I declared I was done with the four-letter word.” She follows into a whirlwind of emotions as she decides whether she should say “I love you” first or not. Finishing with the lament of, “I guess I’ll just keep dancing to our rhythm. Making you listen to songs that subtly tell you how I really feel. Until one of us says it, first.”

Bahbah cemented her feelings on her new project stating: “It’s a really cute piece and will definitely tug a lot of heart strings. It’s my first work that emulates a healthy love story, based purely on my relationship with my current partner.”
