REHAK is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
Director Pierre B. has an amazing way of bringing animated characters to life in his short film Rehak. In giving life to these characters, each displays a variety of emotions which makes them loveable to adults and children alike. Rehak allows viewers to appreciate childlike minds and imagination, and shows us how childhood memories can become important teachable moments.

Rehak and Boo Boo are the very best of friends, with an inseparable relationship, until their "Dream Team" becomes broken. Rehak remains a magical drawing stuck in time hidden behind her bedroom wall while life moves on for her beloved friend Boo Boo. Years pass until Rehak resurfaces and is found by a child named Lilli. The two seem to appreciate each other's company and each appears desperate for a new friend. Rehak shares with Lilli stories of the magical friendship she once shared with Boo Boo. Her stories are incredibly meaningful and filled with such entertainment.

I sincerely enjoyed how a magical drawing could inspire us to appreciate such small things in life. Our childlike imaginations have value and are not just for kids. They are worthy of being shared from generation to generation. The cinematography in Rehak is out of this world! The scenes transition so well between animation and live action which brings great life to the drawings. The film takes place within Lilli's bedroom which is dark and lonely. Once Rehak surfaces and tells stories of her past, the room seems to liven up with excitement. The music in Rehak is quite uplifting. In fact, it's the first thing I came to love about this short film. The songs are emotional, dramatic and entertaining, which adds so much to this film.

How a magical drawing comes to life and brings such meaning to a film is what I felt to be the most remarkable effect in Rehak. Imagination is not just for kids and deserves to be shared and passed down through generations. Lilli certainly adds so much to this short film, but the character that inspires us the most is Rehak. Rehak delivers such an important message. You can feel the emotions in Rehak's stories and she makes you want to jump right into your mom's lap and ask her to share her own stories of imaginative characters that she once held near and dear to her heart. After watching this short film, I wanted to know if my parents had any imaginary friends when they were younger. I sat down with them immediately and asked for details. My favorite part of the film is the reuniting of the "Dream Team." This scene brings about some drama and suspense and is soon replaced by joy and happiness. The producer and director of this film, Pierre B. has the most star power in Rehak. I would love to see more of his work.

The message in Rehak is that imagination is not just for kids. Imagination can inspire people of all ages.

I give Rehak 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6-18 plus adults. This is a beautiful film for the family and offers such great teachings about imaginary friends, childhood, spirituality and education. Reviewed by Dominic D., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
