Note: The link to the Vimeo trailer went private and I didn’t find another one. The film is not currently listed on IMDB and they have no credits for Hosea as a director (even though they link to Shadow and Act’s original article about the movie. I’m moving the film to “Limbo” for now. Also, the film’s “official site” link is broken.
