Through Her Eyes
NoBudge-O-Ween • Short Films, 26-Oct-2022
On a snowy night, a mysterious woman arrives at a hotel and captures the attention of a trio of men.“Through Her Eyes,” directed by Stella Gatti, is gothic noir based on the mythical archetype of Medusa. The glamorous woman with dark sunglasses and overcoat enters a candle lit lobby with faded chandelier opulence. As she checks in, she draws the gaze of an intrigued young man across the room. Her intentions are unknown, her stay indefinite, but she casts a spell immediately and sends the sleepy inn into a fever dream state. Gatti makes great use of an Italian prog rock tune from Goblin that aids striking visuals and enigmatic tone. -KA. Director: Stella Gatti. Cast: Lola Gatti, Caleb Short, Emmett Smith, Kyvon Edwins.
