I remember Jose's face from a bar I used to go to in Cape Town. And while everyone has a story to tell, this one knocked me off my feet.The staccato editing by Lucian Barnard really pulls the viewer into Jose's psyche.
Director Dave Meinhard's thoughtful approach to grim subject matter results in a beautiful video. I have to applaud his commitment to telling responsible stories.
And, finally, the feel good part of this piece? A crowd-funded project sent Jose to Europe so he could not be present at the screening at CineSud, but also the opportunity to meet with investors in regards to a feature biopic.
