Wayne State student releases short film Nile, a look into Black fatherhood from sons eyes
As a student, shooting a short film during a pandemic is a hard task to take on, but Wayne State Film student Miles Reuben was up for the challenge. Reuben recently released NILE: A Visual Embodiment of a Sonic Experience, which takes a look into Black fatherhood from a sons perspective. The original intent of the film was supposed to be a visual aid to the song and showcase my skills as a director to show diversity, he states. The pandemic not only changed the intent of the film but it also changed the look of it and made it challenging to create. The short film has since been selected by Retrospective of Jupiter, an award winning short film website, and a daily pick by the internationally acclaimed film website, Film Shortage.
