Three short films. Three women's harrowing journeys to find inner peace in their respective worlds, whether it is Earth (A Song For Swan), a parallel dimension (The Reve), or an alternate realm (Since).
'Embers of the Sky' is an anthology of three short films that tells three different stories about three female protagonists and their respective journeys to find peace. Along the way, each overcomes many hard struggles, wild characters, and emotional conflicts as they battle to find inner freedom. 'A Song For Swan' revolves around aliens on Earth, 'The Reve' centers around a realm not of our world, and 'Since' takes place in a parallel dimension. Written by
I was skeptical when I first got a screener of this feature film, but the execution of some imaginative ideas soon changed my mind. Embers of the Sky is unique in that it is three different sci-fi (the grounded good kind) films connected by a theme where each protagonist (all female) is searching for inner peace. To me, I could see the seeds of a visionary inside the writer-director because you can tell he's thinking on another level of imagination then us "normal" folk. Add to the fact that the films are technically well done (noted lighting, editing) and acted well (kudos go to the main characters of Swan and Since), each film is unique, but firm with it's voice. To me, that's hard to find in Hollywood these days. I've seen a lot of talented folks fall through the cracks, so I hope this guy gets a chance to show what he can do on the biggest stage one day.
