When We Lived in Miami 2013

Amy Seimetz

Filmed during Hurricane Isaac, When We Lived in Miami is a hypnotic short about the lengths one woman will go to keep her family from falling apart.

Amy Seimetz created this film for Borscht 8.


Vienna International Film Festival, 2012


"[Amy Seimetz] is a cinematic poet of steamy sunlight and murky water, of old-car smell and scratched furniture, of heat and climatic violence and the quick-trigger tension that they spark…. As in her feature [Sun Don’t Shine], Seimetz achieves images of a dense and inward atmosphere, a visual mood of tangle and haze that fuses with the fierce performances to provide a richly textured and specific sense of place." - The New Yorker
