Director's statement
“The bonds I forge with others, the capacity to love and to be loved, defines my experience. The juxtaposition of these two men, the polarity of their sensibilities, reinforce the power that relationships have for us. Even though they meet that evening and spend only one night together, both have a profound effect on the other. WE’RE STILL TOGETHERshows us as we really are: scared, defensive, lonely but trying to be generous, strong, loving. It is through the exploration, the acceptance, the embracing of others that we come to truly know ourselves.”
