“Can’t describe how much true to the core it was for & how much goosebumps your film gave me, since myself I am Ukrainian. So the language. I mean. As you can guess. Struck a deep note. Beautiful work Meeshelle! Stunning.” Val️

I’m writing you because I recently saw your film Sweet Release at the Vancouver short film fest and wanted to say a quick thanks for your inspiring work. I really connected with the honesty of the film and how truthful the storytelling was. I was really impressed with how naturally your film moved. I found myself really reflecting about your film for a few days afterwards and it created a strong desire in me to write more.” Riley“This short film is bittersweet, heartbreaking and touching.” Utah Film Festival & Awards
