In this month’s article I am going to focus on another inspiring independent short film which brings to the table an eerie and somewhat creepy story that proved a joy to watch from start to end and really brings an element of drama, terror, pain and brooding to the table, a bit like an orchestra of inner torment.
However, with such powerful storytelling sinking in an ocean of emotions and great acting the true challenge for me comes here and now as I write because what can I say about this film without spoiling everything for future viewers by inclusion of story and praise more then earned with its eerily good story, perfectly chosen music and amazing acting.
The fact this film is also currently making its way through the festival scene around the US with Austin, Hollywood and Chicago just the latest festivals to select this psychological masterpiece for its 2020 dates
Following a successful world premiere in December 2019 at the Oregon Scream week horror festival only adds to my dilemma as to what I write.
I will now commence writing on this film without distraction…
As an award winner at the Istanbul Andromeda film festival and Best International Director winner in Oregon, during its premiere, KEEP MUM is certainly gaining plenty of attention for its intense psychological styling and writing by director Luana Di Pasquale (Lunadipas Films), producer Lisa Turnbull (Reblis Films) in association with QareyFilm, and lead cast Nadira Murray and 8-year old son Cameron.
