Young Mexican filmmaker directs short film in Canada
By Atención Staff
Kathián Pascal, a 21-year-old Mexican filmmaker, was chosen to direct the short film One Last Story by the Vancouver Film School from which she graduated. One Last Story, written by Kyler Henderson and directed by Pascal, touches on elements of faith, family and imagination. “The film is a mix of live action and 3D animation and can be closely related to E.T. and Bedtime Stories,” said Pascal. The filmmaker explained that One Last Story is about Aiden (David Raynolds), a seven-year-old who loves hearing bedtime stories read by his mother before going to sleep. The stories open up a whole new world for him to explore with the guidance and companionship of his mother. After an unfortunate accident, Aiden loses both of his parents and his childhood. Aiden’s imagination is dwindling until one night something comes out of the closet to meet him and inspire a whole new level of adventure and friendship. The short film is expected to be presented at several international festivals. Pascal comes from a family related to film and theater in Mexico. Her mother and great-grandmother are both actresses, and her grandmother is a renowned TV director.
