Well Made Short Film
30 December 2014 | by TheExpatriate700See all my reviews

Duvid is an interesting, serio-comic short film dealing with a young Hasidic Jewish man and his attempts to navigate the wider world. The film explores his journey by examining his relationships with two young women-one a rave enthusiast, the other a fellow Hasidic Jew.

Director Chelsea Rebecca gets good performances out of her cast of unknowns. Even though she has barely half an hour to work with, all the major characters are reasonably fleshed out, while the film explores serious issues while remaining humorous.

Probably the best scene is when a character unwittingly ingests LSD and begins to trip. Rebecca ignores the impulse toward wild imagery, conveying the trip through subtle cues of light. All told, she shows every sign of becoming a talented film maker.
