BARE WITNESS

 

“I found the film Riveting!  and I don’t use that term often”  – Elliot Wilhelm, curator DFT

” The filmmaker, Jeffrey Schultz, makes the bold move of presenting 15 minutes of film with no dialogue. Very difficult to keep an audience, but he accomplishes it to the point where you have to shake your head to wake from the dream/spell he puts you in from the clever pacing and visual style. Well directed and acted with excellent production value on an indie budget.” — Christopher Gentry, Award winning Producer

“With his directorial debut film, “Bare Witness,” Jeffery Schultz has created a psychological thriller that not only shows his prowess as a visual storyteller, but where he gives his audience respect by allowing them the opportunity to come to their own conclusions. Jeff’s film is essentially a silent movie in which he never “tells,” but rather “shows” a riveting story through visuals, music and sound design that is thematically rich and cohesive without the need for dialogue. “Bare Witness” resonates with thought-provoking imagery that haunts the viewer’s psyche.  Jeff is a rare talent. ” — Chuck Cirgenski, Emmy award winning producer, director, screenwriter.
