A film review by Jamie Richardson
Director Nesaru Tchaas’ live-action short film SOME STILL SEARCH follows the simultaneous stories of a woman in ICE detention, and the 5-year-old boy she’s left behind. The film received its world premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival. Tchaas’ film shares a harrowing story of those less fortunate, a story that is a shock to the system.
Tchaas film shares a harrowing story of those less fortunate, a story that is a shock to the system.
The film has three distinct stories the ICE police officers who are doing their job, the illegal immigrant for whom every second is a tension filled never ending nightmare and the separated infant, too young to realise the danger they are in.
The cinematography is dark and shadowy, it depicts the life of an immigrant very well; short scenes of brightness and sunshine, showing people going about their normal life is the dream of the immigrant who walks these streets, who lives and breathes it, but is not a part of it, so close and yet so far.
SOME STILL SEARCH is an OSCAR Worthy sobering film that causes a person to stop and reflect on life in general.
