CGiii Comment

All this film needed was a brutal editor to cut out all the rambling...and, an ending would have helped enormously!

"The Love Spell" is a 16mm film which follows a babysitter and child who perform an Astrological ritual together to honor Venus. The odd friendship between the babysitter, Tucker, and child, Sebastian is an ode to yearning for connection amidst our society's pandemic (within a pandemic) of loneliness. Slowly throughout the story Tucker and Sebastian reveal their kindred spirits to each other and heal their separateness by way of ecstatic catharsis and union, under the full moon. Their mutual support unveils that the spell holds more power than just summoning a partner, but rather it's a battle cry to be witnessed and love whoever is in front of you.
