"The Switch" is an acclaimed independent film that received Tropfest short film awards at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. The guiding theme for the 2007 Tropfest competition was the concept of a “slice”, which the juried films portrayed with a variety of techniiques, ranging from incorporating slices of food in a film, to a more subtle psychological "slicing up" of a film's characters, to even slicing the movie screen in half.
"The Switch" weaves an unusual story that reveals the painful experience of a grievously fated intimate attraction. Specifically, the film traces the course of a serendipidous encounter between two people whose surface disparities form the basis of their strong mutual attraction, while a more fundamental difference between them ensures that the yearnings both harbor for the most intimate level of love with each other will be doomed. However, the ending of this film expresses an important message to more attentive viewers about the relational importance of the experience of surprise.
