‘As of Yet’: Film Review | Tribeca 2021

Duplass Brothers Production
Taylor Garron and Chanel James co-direct this film exploring two friends learning to communicate during the pandemic.
The coronavirus pandemic disrupted, among many other parts of life, how people communicate. As conversations migrated to Zoom, nonverbal gestures — eye contact and subtle facial expressions — were harder to discern, making it more difficult to talk about needs and set necessary boundaries. As of Yet, a new film directed by Taylor Garron and Chanel James, delightfully, if slightly predictably, tackles those challenges.

Like many New Yorkers, Naomi (Taylor Garron) has spent the early days of the pandemic trying to stave off boredom by cobbling together a routine, leaning into retail therapy and dressing up just to feel alive. She dances around her apartment, cooks semi-elaborate meals, FaceTimes with her family and schedules virtual happy hours with her friends and cousin. She’s also started a video diary, although she’s not really sure why.
