Katrina's Son
23 June 2011 | by RubyAndTheArtsSee all my reviews

2011 San Antonio Film Festival : I attended last night. KATRINA'S SON get's a 10 from me. I was probably the most inexperienced short film reviewer of everyone sitting in that theater last night, but I felt everything that the main character, Ed felt. You see, I am a nurse. I don't know very much about the film industry, but i can certainly give my opinion on the messages, that films send out. With over 30 years of experience as a nurse, I must say, Mr. Yake captured me with this one. I felt the emotions that it wanted the audience to feel, and believe me, I have seen much emotions in my field of work. Mr. Tre, and the rest of the cast deserve an Academy Award recognition, along with Mr. Yake, Mr. Lopez, and others involved with the film. This is coming from an unknown in the film world (although i was an extra in the Jennifer Lopez movie, Selena), but well known in the world of compassion, healing, and wellness. Keep up the good work Mr. Yake. You've touched another. Thanks for sharing this film.
