Unsafe Spaces

When getting off the late shift, what looks like 50 feet, feels like 50 miles to a woman alone in a parking lot.

Writer/Director

Women are either taught or come to understand that we must be hyper vigilant in vulnerable situations. This societal idea turns mundane tasks like walking to a car into situations of survival. I wanted this short film to showcase what that moment can feel like.

In UNSAFE SPACES writer/director Connor Sandheinrich perfectly captures how scary an instance like this can be, by letting it play out in what feels like real-time.  I’ve been there before.  I know a lot of us have.  It’s an exciting reminder of how a very simple idea can be extremely effective and really resonate with an audience.
