I saw this short film at the deadCenter Film Festival in Oklahoma and found it to be an excellent film. I walked in thinking I was going to see a stereotypical Native American "Smoke Signals" remake but from the opening shot I quickly realized this was something completely different. The story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me interested through the eerie ending. The actors were very well cast and delivered perfectly subtle performances and I couldn't find a single technical flaw (given the obvious limited budget). My only issue with the story was that the end wasn't as powerful as I expected. I wanted something more. Towards the end, once I figured out that the film was a metaphor for the culture, I thought the end should have been... more dramatic. I was fortunate enough to meet with both the Director and DP at the festival and was impressed with both of them. These guys will both go far in the industry.
2 thumbs up!
