CGiii Comment

There's much to admire.

It's a little dark in places...but, the colour palette is fantastic. The sound design is nothing but accomplished.

Definitely, atmospheric. Definitely creepy...not easy to achieve with a short film.

The(ir) Blurb...

Living amidst the lonely and barren hills, Maud is content to provide and rely on solely upon herself. Still coming to terms with the death of her abusive mother, she refuses visitors and confines herself to her house. When Maud's prayer beads go missing, she is happy to dismiss the disappearance but as the strange happenings go from bad to worse, Maud is left with no choice but to confront the spirit hiding in the shadows of her home. Maud performs a ritual to untether the spirit and set it free, but just as she believes she has cast away her maleficent mother, Maud realises that the trauma left behind after death may be something she must always live with.
