Nando Del Castillo,
I viewed "The House at the Edge of the Galaxy" this past week at the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival. It is an exceptional stimulating film.
This riveting story takes us on a journey through the eyes of a young boy, living alone, hopelessly stuck in the middle of the woods.
The casting choices are excellent, as is the cinematography, composition and choice of location. The film's dreary blue gray look brilliantly adds to the bleak desolation. The visual style leads me to believe the director was influenced by Bergman and Tarkovsky.
Check out this film. You won't be disappointed.
