The Anniversary (2017)

Written and directed by Sasha Nixon and Mary Rinaldi
Assistant Director and Editor- Adam Harvey

A couple sharing their special anniversary have an unexpected night of fun and silliness.

A disconnected couple rediscover their spark while commemorating a significant milestone, playing games and reminding themselves that life can be worth living even after profound loss.

"This was a change of pace for me- no blood or violence, just a heartfelt, human story. It was written and directed by Mary and Sasha Rinaldi, and I was the assistant director and editor, and was honoured to help bring their vision to life."
