"RESEMBLANCE is a poetic short narrative that showcases the power of empathy and the beauty in re-discovering seemingly lost memories. It’s a moving drama with a twist. From the beginning the music is beautifully haunting and the writing, acting and direction make this film a little gem. Every time I think there is nothing new to learn or glean from the Holocaust, a film like this reminds me how much more there is to mine."

- Cleveland International Film Festival Screener


"MAN IN THE WOODS. The film is clever as it delivers a twist from a story of a boy who is lost in the woods to the surrealistic thoughts of our protagonist. The film was very powerful, and the choppy editing style contributed to a feeling that something dramatic was soon to come. I thought it was executed effectively, and I was deeply moved."

- Cleveland International Film Festival Screener


"The one thing your films always do, without fail, is capture me by the throat so I can't escape. Everything around me disappears and I am in the story with your characters. True escape is what a film should be about. Transporting the audience into the world of the story while their world falls away around them. Your films do that every time. Congratulations on another breathtaking film."
