Takahiro Suzuki is the current Aunspaugh Fifth Year Fellow in the Studio Art department at the University of Virginia. The film Reservoir is inspired by the short story of the same title by Christa Romanosky. Shot from the first person perspective of the story’s protagonist, the film offers glimpses into the tranquility of the late night landscape and the character’s feelings of darkness, confusion, and uncertainty.
