This short narrative video tells the story of a dissolving relationship as expressed through a herd of invading deer. An exploration of love's irresolute tides of plenty and drought, "The Intimate Words" balances a poignant narration with images of nature and deer, who slip from their role of accomplices to unwilling actors, deeply rooted in their animal nature.
