All Animals


“[This] sun-dappled vignette of a conflicted husband and his deaf daughter on a California backroad captures the aching ambivalence and hard choices of postdream America.”
- Michael Fox, SF Weekly

“When you watch, say, 5 days of art films, you start to consciously realize when directors are giving you cues to understand their story, and All Animals unfolds itself beautifully in this respect – and in the process makes a statement about how difficult it is to communicate who we really are even to those closest to us. The 16-minute short, filmed in California, utilizes Hindu reincarnation, urban folklore, pop psychology, sign language and most strikingly—silence—to tell its story.”
- Elena Marinaccio, El Paso Epic
