Director Eliot Rausch brings us his latest creation “A Mothers Letter” which is an emotive short film, speaking on the thoughts of a mother who is longing for the return of her child.
For me Eliot, who is working for Phos Pictures on this project, has captured the essence of what short creative film is all about. Using the perfect blend of visual excitement and narrative, the film promotes imagination and concept leaving the audience in a moment of self reflection.
I love the fact that this piece feels genuinely human and is about real life, I was left with an underlying sympathy for the mother as the story unfolded.
A Mother’s Letter is packed full of drama but is handled with a refined subtlety, this piece could have come across quite tacky and unbelievable but the team at Phos has done a remarkable job.
In the world we live in today unfortunately many of us know or have known those who have been caught by the consequences of living in this culture of pushing the boundaries.
I think we need more short films like this to both educate and remind the worlds youth of the consequences of living life on the edge. Their is a fine line between celebration and liberation from the real world.
“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” – Agatha Christie
