Anthony Nti’s Da Yie is shortlisted for Live Action Short this season, and it has a really good shot of making the final five. The story of two young children coming close to immediate danger when they happen to go off with a stranger is told with mystery but you never lose the sense that something bad might happen. You never questions the authenticity of Nti’s film.
Nti sat down with Academy Award nominee Marcia Garcia Turgeon to talk about casting and the story. Mathilda Enchil and Prince Agortey, the young stars of the film, talk about working together and their connection on screen.
