During a wake held in the home of a slain photographer, the young man's ten-year-old brother confronts a room of somber faces as he tries to make sense of what has happened to his hero. Determined to make this event something more than a day of mourning, the boy decides to honor him the best way he knows how - by documenting the wake with his brother's camera. 'Wake' was written and directed by Andrew Lawton.
“Five Stars... Thoughtfulness, genuine sincerity, and total emotional honesty are what one can expect from Wake.” - Rory L. Aronsky, FILM THREAT
“Wake took me completely by surprise. It’s a short independent film... and yet it touched me more deeply than most big-budget mainstream dramas. Although everything works... it’s Christopher Kutil’s unforgettable portrayal of Nicky that wowed me the most.” - Betty Jo Tucker, REEL TALK REVIEWS
