UK FILM REVIEW
Intense and bursting with robust familial issues, filmmaker Anthony Kalmeta’s short film Overcast is a stunning example of dramatic filmmaking.

Character development is a dizzying roller coaster. Well written, well shot, well acted - the entire package... Well done, period.
The film explores the idea of parental manipulation and the effect it has on a child - especially where memory is concerned.
The story itself is set between two worlds, one for each parent, in which the audience decides their own truth. This perceptual grey area is where the film gets its name, it signifies the tone and overarching significance of the story.
