Phillip Noyce & Sergey Sarkisov present
produced by David Scott Smith & Nick Sarkisov
a film by Svetlana Cvetko
An undeniable spark during a chance meeting leads
Christine, Nassim, and Marcello to explore their sexuality together
as each struggle to prove their worth to their families,
themselves, and the world around them.
It’s a love story - unconventional but firmly rooted in the
contemporary times we live in - that takes these three adventurous
characters from Los Angeles to Italy on a journey of self-discovery.
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 production, visuals, dialogue and editing 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.
“Show Me What You Got is a visual and emotional poem dedicated to the lovers and dreamers who are attempting to make a difference in this world.”
