Robert Machoian loves his own children. With his children as an inspiration, he crafted a story with The Killing of Two Lovers about a father’s attempts to do whatever he can to keep his family together despite a separation. Not only his children led him to this film, but he also even added them into the film.

The Killing of Two Lovers follows David, who desperately tries to keep his family of six together during a separation from his wife, Nikki. They both agree to see other people but David struggles to grapple with his wife’s new relationship.

It stars Clayne Crawford, Sepideh Moafi, Chris Coy, Avery Pizzuto, Arri Graham, and Ezra Graham.

His sophomore feature film, God Bless the Child, with his co-director Robert Ojeda-Beck, received numerous awards, including best film at CPH:DOX despite being a narrative hybrid.
