Shooting Your Own Shadow


A jaded and delusional assassin rethinks some life choices with her manager, while believing she’s the main character in a 90s style tv show called, “Shooting Your Own Shadow”.

Our Review

This short film on subtle emotion is challenging and absorbing. The two lead performers are classy and sophisticated in their performance. This film has a fascinating story line and like all great surrealist films, the interpretation and meaning that each viewer will see something different of it. The film presents her story of loneliness through many moments of silence that adds up to the movie's thought-provoking plot. The location, set, camera, editing are all commendable.
