The Beholder Short Film has premiered. Nisha Ganatra‘s Beholder (2011) stars Jessica Pare, Rupak Ginn, Elaine Hendrix, Michael McMillian, and Michael Mosley. Beholder‘s plot synopsis: “Beholder takes place in the biosphere-protected Red Estates, a gated community with a socially conservative political majority. At a clinic where patients can genetically engineer their children, Sasha, the wife of rising political star Bobby Aryana, is informed that her baby carries the genetic marker for homosexuality. By the laws of Red Estates, this is an aberration that must be dealt with immediately, and Sasha must decide between staying faithful to the love of her life or risking everything. Touching on issues of race, sexual orientation, and conformity, Beholder examines the notion of identity and the costs of belonging.” This was higher quality than I was expecting. It seemed like a segment of a larger story. The genetically engineering children storyline has a distinct similarity with Jim and Soldier. Beholder also stars Bonnie Kathleen Ryan, David Cade, Jay Bingham, Bruce Daniels, and Tim Moran. Watch Beholder below and leave your thoughts on it.
