EnLighthouse Entertainment’s eight-minute film What’s Up? is a well-researched, smartly put together film that chronicles the controversy and conspiracies surrounding chem trails. The film, which was created for the 2010 Doc Challenge, was written, directed, produced and conceived by Kim Sheridan, an eco-minded Californian who has a finger on the pulse of the green revolution’s most pertinent topics. To date, What’s Up? has won awards at various small-level film festivals, and even took home an award at the prestigious IndieFest. Most recently What’s Up? was screened at the Long Island International Film Expo and the New Hope Film Festival, two under-the-radar film festivals that have both been profiled on this very blog.
As a film, What’s Up? does very little wrong. Sure it could have been longer –– it would have done well as a feature length for sure ––– it argues its point well and does so in a manner that points towards something promising, inquisitive and hopeful. If this is just the start of Sheridan’s documentary career, then based on the merits of this film, one has to think she most certainly has a breakout film up her sleeve.
