This article discusses a story of heartbreak, produced from the perspective of a student film, inspired by philosopher Barthes Rolands book A Lovers Discourse. Much like a prince choosing a favorite consort, or a jacket seeking its model, it takes same sex love and dialect, putting on the appearance of jealousy, soliloquy, yearning, and attachment in succession. Just like in love, relationships go through a repeated cycle of dialectical validation; using experimental techniques to edit frames in a repeated array, and conveying mood through monologue and repetition of words, this film is distinct from the typical storytelling methods employed by college film students. Repetition is a very important subject in human ideology; the relationship between one person to another is like that of the galaxies; perhaps yesterday he was your sun, your moon, yet one day in the future, you may grow out of reach from one another others orbit, like the lonely and faraway Pluto. Thus, this films name is: Calling Pluto.
