  1. Zac Weber's rating of the film Asad

    I really enjoyed this hard-to-find short film when I saw it in a live-action package presented in Chicago. I was nearly overcome with joy as the young boy strolls through his hometown in the final scenes.

  2. Joshuah's rating of the film Asad

    if we all had Persian cats the world would be a better place.

  3. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Asad

    A little Somalian boy, who dreams of one day being a pirate with his friends, discovers the nasty truth behind the lifestyle he idolizes when a band of soldiers from Mogadishu arrives in his town. A bit too on the nose perhaps in its "overcoming adversity" finale, but it has a hard hewn authenticity that is hard to shake. A 2012 Oscar nominee for Best Live Action Short.
