1. Dispel

Directed by Kylie Eaton, Dispel is a fantasy short film that works as a metaphor for the struggles of being a parent, captured from a child’s perspective. The cinematography and the use of color in Dispel are visually stunning, and the story is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Dispel is about a young Lizzie who learns her older brother is moving out and realizes she will be left at home alone with her monster of a mother. Armed with the lessons of her favorite TV show, ‘Celeste Skygoode’, Lizzie battles to save her mother from the dark forces that have transformed her. The cast of Eris Baker, Omete Anassi, and Gina Torres give magnificent performances throughout the short film.
