Bye Bi Love (2010) Trailer
Trailer for the short film Bye Bi Love.
"How do you open an invitation to the wedding of your ex-girlfriend?" asks Bye Bi Love's protagonist Vera as a fancy, calligraphed envelope lands with a thud in her mailbox. Her present girlfriend, Carla, deadpans: "With your teeth."
So opens Bye Bi Love, a short fiction film that doubles as a study of objects and their attendant memory. As Vera conjures her previous relationships over one sleepless night --be they with her ex-husband, Craig, or with her ex-girlfriend, Felicia-- that bygone time moves fluidly and impressionistically. Vera's memories of ex-lovers are evoked by the objects they bring with them, as they both enter into and depart from her life and home.
Relating to relationships both gay or straight, either legally recognized or banned by the legislative state, Bye Bi Love bypasses the standard controversies of the matter to consider the very real trappings of marriage and relationships. We are left to ponder whether or not we ever really let go of past loves and previous partners so that we may truly embrace the present moment.
