Leadership Conference (2021) is a six-minute film conceived by Joshua Kaufman and frequent collaborators, including cinematographer Matthew Kyle Levine, with performances by Michael Chinworth, Coral Maltz, and Zack Booth.
 
The film opens with a young man stumbling through the recollection of events leading to a traumatic head injury. 
 
The second scene explores the panic-inducing kind of regret that swells from a loss of control. 
 
Leadership Conference probes the subjective nature of experience — particularly of trauma — and the dissonance between our internal monologues and physical bodies.
