See | Short Film
A short drama directed by James Mossahebi.
See follows the friendship between childhood companions Alice and Michael. Alice looks set to move to a new school as her eyesight deteriorates, but aspiring inventor Michael is convinced he can prevent her from leaving with the help of the latest and greatest creation from his bedroom workshop.

Beautiful, melancholic, nostalgic and bittersweet; these are all the qualities of Jamie Mossahebi’ See.
Youth is a troubling time full of fears and half understood truths. Childhood is a mixture of the good, the bad and often the infinitely regrettable. To have two child stars that manage to carry across all the depth of these feelings is a rare achievement.
In addition to See’s perfect casting there is also the presence of stunning visuals; each shot is gorgeous as well as practical. There is no needless gimmicky or filler here.
You could have the most critically distinct mind set in the world and still come away emotional from this film. And if you somehow still manage to remain dry-eyed (you won’t, but anyway…) here is a film that can be admired for its construction alone.
As I said before, See is beautiful, melancholic, nostalgic and bittersweet.
