Hanging on a Telephone
Directed by Billy Rudberg
Ricky, a self imposed pariah, finds himself in a seedy motel paying a phone sex operator to try to excise the ghosts that haunt him. Hanging on a Telephone is an examination of loneliness, truth, toxic masculinity, and mental health. Depicting how we allow our imperfections to project the worst of us onto others, whether consciously or subconsciously, which allows them to loom over every facet of our lives, warping reality, and creating a new narrative to hide from our true selves.
