SADNESS TIME is a web series written and directed by Andre Wells and shot in and around Boston MA in 2014. Eilis Quinn and Mimi Oupravanh star as two roommates who are driven to conflict by their sharply opposed worldviews; one is a defeatist shut-in who spends her days on the couch believing life is generally pointless, the other a problem-solver who believes in her ability to bend the world to her will. Through a unique tone of dark and surreal comedy, SADNESS TIME dives into the minds of these dysfunctional characters by creating surreal dreamscapes that mirror their aimlessness and confusion.
SADNESS TIME is about living in a world full of lights and colors that refuse to make sense. It’s when the smallest tasks are impossible because your limbs weigh a thousand pounds. When believing in yourself doesn’t work. When you can’t get to where you want to be no matter how hard you scream at yourself. When a thousand little contradictions are battling in your brain. When you force yourself to believe that everything is fine.
SADNESS TIME drags you to the places inside yourself that you’ve always wanted to avoid. Welcome.
