SHORT FILM
DIRECTOR / HASSAN SAID

 

 

Oliver, a retired single parent, comes home from the store to find his autistic daughter, Ana, brutally abused. Taking matters into his own hands, the father sets off on a hunt to reap his revenge.

In the end, my main goal was to tell a story that would not shy from brutal imagery, not try to limit itself with predictable character resolutions, not follow a typical film-act structure, and psychologically push the characters to limitless extents.

“The unsettling cinematography, the non-linear editing, and the emotionally driven performances all played off to me as a beautiful harmonic symphony. A film that is powerful from its story to its final sound mix. Everything worked together really weLl and concluded a story that I will never forget.”
