The Bridge of Marlon Torres

In general, I don’t care for war stories—especially those in a contemporary setting like WW2. They bore me.
Which is why it is weird that I chose to watch this one. Something about the look and feel of The Bridge compelled me to start watching... and then keep watching to the end. This is no ordinary war story.
Only afterward did I realize this wonderful film produced by Amy Ng, was written, directed, shot & edited by Marlon Torres. The Marlon Torres of Torres Studios , who made another spectacular short film I love called The Last Son of Celeste (which appears on this blog).

And you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not immerse yourself in his beautiful Pacifica video series of shore scenes.
Besides an adept filmmaker, Marlon is also a photographer of some skill, with samples available on his site.
