The Visit is a day in the time of a visit with a mother (June Squibb) and son (Sean Maher). The story takes a specific monent in time during the son’s life and develops a sequence of events that changes lives. The son must face the consequences of the events.
Schwedler’s attention to details in the film completes the story. She states, “every little detail, in the lighting, the wardrobe design, and every odd thing matters.” The juxtaposition of this story develops well with the attention to details.
Schwedler develops the story from a conversation she had with her father concerning her aunt. Her aunt experiences loss of most family and friends. Coping with the deep grief and loss her aunt develops elaborate stories about those she lost. Her techniques in film development here allow the audience to experience the emotions in the story.
The casting for the short film was “serendipitous,” she says. She approaches June Squibb, Oscar nominated actress, at an award dinner in Los Angeles with a flash drive of the script. Sean Maher, Ben in the short film, heard about the project and appreciates June Squibb’s work. His agent contacted Schwedle in regards to working on the project. The casting provides a twist much like the film. Check local film festival events for screening.
