HIDDEN IN THIS PICTURE is written Aaron Sorkin and directed by Amber Hale. HIDDEN tales the tale of
longtime friends who have taken their theater partnership to the big screen in their first film. Hounded

(and breaking) relationships - all under the constraints of a time limit!

this fast-moving absurdist piece.
