I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
2016, 7:37, narrative.
A wayward selkie (a seal that can turn itself into a human) has followed a school of herring up the Delaware river when her seal skin is captured by a man from the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia.
Starring Katie Stahl, Jordan Mottram, and Gerardo Salazar
Written and Directed by Amy Frear
"SELKIE is a beautifully shot and well-acted narrative metaphor for the soul-crushing effect of being involved in an unhealthy relationship... What also makes this short film remarkable is that it relays the emotional beats of the story without a word of dialogue spoken - except for the fisherman’s opening monologue.
