An encouragement to filmmakers we've frequently made here on S&A is to explore new genres and styles of filmmaking, given the wealth of relationship comedies/relationship dramedies/relationship dramas (whether shorts, features, or web series) that fill our email inboxes from time to time.

But if you absolutely must make a film/web series that fits underneath that "relationship" genre umbrella, at least consider doing something fresh with it, whether stylistically, structurally, narratively, etc. Do something that makes it stand out from the deluge.

Like what writer/director/producer Martine Jean did with her short film The Silent Treatment, which stars Emayatzy Corinealdi.

Malik Whitfield, Jacoby Mosby, and Monifa Ellis round out the starring cast.

As the title of this post says, the 9-minute short, inspired by silent black & white films made during the first half of the 20th century, tells the brief and simple tale of a woman (Corinealdi) scorned. 

Not much else to say, except, take a look:
