The Devil in the Doorway, by Chase Tarca is about a young journalism student who uncovers a deep, dark secret when he investigates his family's history to win a prestigious scholarship. 'My goal for this film is to shine light into a dark place, this dark place is culture. Culture tells us that satisfying ourselves without worrying about the effects or outcome from our actions is normal, if we get instant satisfaction, it's good. This film is stepping into a dark 'room' to give it light, you have to rid the 'devil in the doorway' from blocking the light.' - Chase TarcaWritten by
The Devil in the Doorway is well written and acted out. I was impressed with the acting. The film maker made it feel longer than it was, where parts feel "suspended in time," lending to powerful interactions. I continued thinking about the conversations and certain words from the film after watching it. It is a contemplative and emotional piece. Many people from all walks of life will be able to relate to this film's stirring message. The story was so deep for being a short and I became so attached to the characters, which is not an easy task for a short film. I could have seen it made as full length easily. Needless to say, when the film ended, I wanted it to be longer.
