Two Rivers

Director   Melonie Gartner

    United States


Two Rivers is a story about the destructive relationship between Dirke (Mark Borchardt) and Emma (Melonie Gartner). Dirke is a troubled individual who can’t hold down a job. Haunted by his own demons and coupled with an explosive temper, Dirke is a force to be reckoned with.

Dirke’s uncontrollable attitude also spills into his relationship with Emma, a long-suffering woman. Dirke’s abusive way leaves her cold and broken. Emma neither has anything left to give to their relationship nor any place nor means to escape her situation. She fears and resents Dirke. Her feelings don’t go unnoticed – Dirke can feel Emma is slipping away from him. The thought that he cannot control her feelings makes him out of control all the more.

Two Rivers represents two bodies of water that can’t be merged. It’s Dirke and Emma’s Mesopotamia. A tale of tainted love that has gone past the point of no return.

Indigo is a award winning dramatic short film about alienation on the inside.

Two young, lost souls in New York City share a common struggle - they are stuck in lives they do not feel they belong. She is an adored actress and he, a bike messenger. On the outside they seem like each others opposite, but on the inside they are the same- dehumanized by an internal loneliness that alienates them from feeling alive.

The claws of loneliness affect both characters the same, unconcerned with the typical borders of power and privilege. Synchronicity begins to mirror their lives, and they finally reach a breaking point. It is in this moment, they must choose to find that brave breath- a self power that brings them in touch with truth and the chance to change their trajectory. Both of them make a decision that will bring them back to their true selves and in turn, closer to each other.
