Hold is a sixteen-minute film conceived by Joshua Kaufman and a creative team, including frequent collaborator cinematographer Matthew Kyle Levine, with performances by Jack Meriwether, Fernando Moya Delgado, and Megan Stratton.

In the wake of a poet’s confession-style solo performance, the poet and two friends spend their evening debriefing in a car, and perform the social dance of exposing and downplaying their feelings on topics ranging from the mundane to mental health and queer intimacy.
