This is a beautiful Short Film!, 20 August 2005
Author: C Blake from Studio City, CA

The Moor is a beautiful, touching film. It deals with memories of good times in the past. It shows how we deal with those memories. It is an unusual memorable love story. I saw it with the cast and crew. A friend of mine plays Rita, the waitress. It's fun and heartwarming, at the same time.

It premiered at the Seattle Film Festival. It also just got into the LA International Shorts Film Festival. The Moor will screen on September 11th, 2005, at the Arclight Theatre in Hollywood. If you live in the LA area and can catch the film, do so. It is a very rewarding, moving experience!
