Title: A Short “Documentary”
Starring: Bola Rahman, Dami Ajilore, Tsedey Whitfeld, Daniel Oruwari, Jonathan Murray
Director: Soji Oyinsan and Stephen Oruwari (Co-director)
I know A Short “Documentary” is meant to chronicle the thoughts of a short person, but what I see is basically the sequence of events and circumstances that leads a girl (who is quite short) to meet a tall guy. For a concept that has a lot of potential, the storyline appears to be awfully shallow and lifeless just like the mute characters used, especially Moby when playing a mute part. Unbelievably, the liveliest mute actor in the production is the little child. In total, the production was spot on. Perfect for the concept, but too good for the story.
