Brilliant short film which deservedly received 1 of 10 coveted spaces in the official Cannes Film Fest competition last May, and played to a sold out crowd. The Chair has been sweeping the film festival circuit with "Best Short" and "Best Director" win after win.
It is so rare to see such a masterpiece in short filmmaking. Every aspect of the film craft was excellent from the acting to the story to the cinematography to the editing to the sound design to the music to the lighting, etc. This film rings true of the Southern life of a people living on the other side of the tracks, in a genre all too often riddled with cliché after cliché, but Grainger David adeptly handles what very well could be true of "mold" in the mossy bayou-filled Southern states. This film is mesmerizing and unforgettable. Grainger David is a director to watch. The Chair is a must see.
