Break Up, Baby
Comedy, Short Films, 21-Apr-2021
A woman gets dumped by her boyfriend as everyone else in the world is deeply in love. Fareeha Khan writes and stars in “Break Up, Baby,” a sharply written and performed comedy that weaves in colorful touches of animation and surrealism. After a painful conversation at a diner ends their relationship, the woman sets out to find herself in the park only to be constantly reminded of the power of love. The film is a perfect vehicle for the distinctive delivery/attitude of Khan and the animated overlays add visual flourish.
