Synopsis: “Reprise” is a visual poem that uses slow-mo cinematography to challenge itself to speak as much as it can with as little as possible, much like how a tiny poem can carry much weight. It seeks to delve into the backstory of abuse across different people and relationships – showing no matter how rosy something may seem on the surface, there is more that lurks below.
