Phone Calls is an anthology series of conversations exploring the way people speak to each other when not face to face. Free of physical proximity, a space is born in which personal truths and, often times, ugliness are unleashed by those closest to you as well as those most foreign.
The first three episodes of the series will be screened at the fourth annual Tribeca Film Festival N.O.W. program in New York City this April 2017.
