Short Film Review: AMISSA ANIMA

What do you do when your living involves trauma that might haunt you all your days? Do you weather it out until you can escape or do you take action? If you take action how far do you take it? This brittle, impressionistic film makes the most of its fifteen minutes, keeping the dialogue spare and the observation sharp. Aided by deep black and white cinematography and rich use of location as well as a light touch with performance, Amissa Anima works. It's cold but it works.

Disclosure: I personally know the director and co-writer of this film.

Amissa Anima will  be available online and in cinemas at film festivals throughout 2022. Check your closest.
