This short film explores the relationship between filmmaker, François Truffaut, and his dear friend and colleague, Helen Scott. Their working friendship, developed over the course of two decades, is documented through extensive letters with which we had unique access through Madeleine Morgenstern, Truffaut's ex-wife. Helen Scott, who worked at the New York French Film Office at the cusp of the French Nouvelle-Vague, played a key role in many of Truffaut’s American involvements such as his famous collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock. She helped with his initial entry into the American film scene and continued to be a source of support throughout the years. Through her work, she maintained relationships with various other film directors but had no one as dear as François Truffaut. They quickly became kindred spirits through bonding over their troubled childhoods, sharing a similar sense of humor, and relishing in each other’s advice and support. Helen, who died shortly after François, is buried in close proximity to him in the Montmartre Cemetery in Paris. This film will portray the unique connection between two incredible individuals: one French and the other American, one renowned and one nearly forgotten.
Love Abridged is a ten-minute comedy about two strangers, Jeremy and Clarice, who embark on a journey to find the definition of love... without ever leaving Clarice’s front lawn.

Before he knows it he is on a date with a Greek Goddess, Thalia, who is the Greek Muse of Comedy.
