Handheld Short Film

"Where did you find that?" "Upstairs in the junk room… It looks like it's from the 80s or something." This lovely, intimate short film is called Handheld and after premiering at film festivals earlier this year it's available to watch online. Made by filmmakers Pisie Hochheim & Tony Oswald, the film is about an old forgotten handicam that disrupts the chaotic bedtime routine of a single mother and her young son. Starring Jordan Gosnell, Emery Oswald, and James Gonzales. Our friends at Short of the Week say it "blurs the line between fiction and documentary to make for a relatable, moving watch." Agreed. A fantastic short.

Thanks to Twitter for the tip on this one. Brief description from Vimeo: "An old forgotten handheld camera disrupts the chaotic bedtime routine of a single mother and her young son."
