Recommended. This short film certainly grabs your attention as fear is something that everyone has. It can also come across as pretty scary. The story is about a girl who faces her fear when she is followed by a car at a shopping mall. The film opens with a description of different ways to handle fear - "some face it in the eye, others run away from it." The viewer is then shown eyes from different animals and segues to the panicked look in the girl's eyes as she realizes she is being followed. This is a well produced short student film by a first time 18-year-old filmmaker with locations in Dubai UAE. The film shows a montage of images of the car, apparently following the girl, her trying to get help from the security people at the mall only to find the car has disappeared. It addresses her feat and you wonder how much is real and how much is imagined. The production quality is quite good with excellent visuals and audio and good editing. The viewer is really drawn into each scene. The eyes that are shown coupled with the fast paced glimpses of the space around the girl allow the viewer to experience the girl's fear with her. It is not appropriate for very young viewers as it would be too frightening. I have a bit of an issue with the girl confronting the car. It may not be appropriate to approach a strange car that is following you. I recommend it for tweens and teens, ages 12 to 18. Adults may enjoy it as well. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
