Well, I Should Get Going // Short Film // 2024


Mariah is desperate to leave a party. 

Director's Statement

"Well, I Should Get Going" marks the third film collaboration between Yoko and Celine. With Yoko's punchy script and Celine's dynamic direction, they capture the all-too-familiar anxiety of wanting to leave a party. Around every corner is someone to avoid, or worse, your ex moving on. Through the tumultuous night, we follow Mariah as she tries to dodge labels and expectations, only to become ensnared in her own web of lies. This comedy hilariously and earnestly explores her sense of being out of place.
