Lacks a coherent storyline

"The Captured Bird" is a 7.5-minute (10 with credits) short film from 3 years ago. The director and writer is Jovanka Vuckovic and I wish I could say this film was as colorful and memorable as the filmmaker's appearance. It was her first work as a director and a couple more followed since then. Next year, she will probably have her first full feature come out, so looks like she is an aspiring filmmaker with a promising future right now. She also won a couple awards for her work here. The lead actress is Skyler Wexler, mostly known for "orphan Black" these days. Unfortunately, the parts did not form a puzzle for me here. There were a couple semi-scary moments, but nothing too horrible really. And it was just a collection of these. I wish there was some connection or real plot development in this short film, then it could have been a much better watch. unfortunately, I cannot recommend it.
