In a richly filmed black-and-white Los Angeles, SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT follows three young millennials as they form a wholehearted ménage à trois, finding joy together by joining political protests, making art, and falling deeper into their unconventional love, until one must return to Italy and their experience there threatens the delicate balance of their relationship in this award winning film that sparks with the restless energy of the French New Wave.
Show Me What You Got is the feature-length directorial debut of
renowned cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko.
My deep love for a rebellious and experimental approach to filmmaking was my guiding inspiration for this film.
Performing as both Director and DP, I tried to create a sense of living realism where the environments, as much as the performances, seep into our awareness and shape our emotions. I wanted the camera to feel like another character experiencing an intimacy with the actors, but also have the omnipotent perspective that steps back at some moments, guiding the audience along on this journey through an unpredictable reality.
