All I can say is wow... Brilliant!
15 June 2018 | by hardeepsgill-98931See all my reviews

I had the privilege of watching a private screening of The Shipment. It was a 30 plus minute gem of a short film direct by Bobby Bala. I do not want to give too much away and spoil it for anyone. All I can say is it is a masterpiece in directing and filmmaking from all aspects. I am sure festivals will be picking up this film very soon as well and awards. Acting was A + with a unique storyline one needs to experience on their own. Very fitting short film for this day and age and an absolute must see! 10/10!
