Herculanum begins with a man anxiously looking at his phone outside the apartment of man, who we learn, he is meeting for the first time. It may not be entirely obvious but it’s clear from conversations about online profiles that this is an encounter initiated through a modern dating app. Writer/Director/Actor/Editor Arthur Cahn explores, through a simple premise, the beginning of a romance. Herculanum is as much about the space between words as it is the words themselves.Director’s Notes at BFI Flare
