SDFF Short Review: Terrebonne

by Dave Minkus
Score: 3/4
director: Jeremy Craig

Short films can be

quite difficult to pull off. At a runningtime usually under 20 minutes,the film has to get to the storytelling immediately, get you invested in the characters quickly and tell a story leaving you satisfied before the credits roll.

Terrebonne is the story of a college student (Dean J. West) visiting a young boy named Fry (Cullen Chaffin) who claims to have seen an incredibly rare ivory-billed woodpecker. The boy’s sister, Jean (Jessica Heap) decides to go with them into the bayou to find where the boy saw it. While on the trip, Jean’s embarrassing past comes to light. The films ends at a nice point that leaves you satisfied, while still wanting more.
