Filmmaker Leland Montgomery's Short Film Makes Cinematic Impact on Indie Festival Circuit


In his newest short film Like Animals, director and writer Leland Montgomery digs deeps into the complicated relationships between siblings after the loss of a parent.

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 28, 2018

When sisters played by Zoe Chao (Strangers, The Comeback), Cass Buggé (Better Things, Transparent), and newcomer Tera McHenry are ready to move and sell their mother's home after her death, their brother Chris Aguila (Opening Night) shows up and forces everyone to reckon with the choices they've made.

The California desert serves as a stunning cinematic backdrop that represents both regret and opportunity, and is steeped in memories. A place that beckons to one is an oppressive weight that the others wish to shed.

The film was a 2017 official selection for the New Hope Film Festival, Asian American International Film Festival, LA Shorts International Film Festival, and San Diego Asian Film Festival.
