HEAD SPACE

HEAD SPACE¬†is a short drama about a single mother concerned with her son’s inability to cope.¬† She sees the tables turn when faced with danger.

Written and Directed by Emma Huibregtse, the film has a wonderful vintage feel which includes the music in the opening scene.¬† A young boy (beautifully portrayed by Brayden Ferrell) is asleep on the floor.¬† His mom (Kelly Vint Castro) is cooking eggs for the boy’s breakfast.¬† The film then takes an interesting turn.

The mom slides the tray of food underneath the kitchen table.¬† The boy remains silent while eating.¬† She tells him that she’ll be going out later that night.¬† The boy never speaks. Obviously, this is a usual occurrence between mother and son.

Lovely cinematography by Alex Ramsey.¬† The angles in the way the film is shot, gives you a sense of the boy’s world from his “safe” place.

In under five minutes, this film takes you on a journey that explores a young boy’s weaknesses – and strengths.
