Door to Purgatory (USA), a tense 14-minute film directed by Alexandra Balda, is streaming now at ISA TV channel. Awarded Silver Best First Time Director (Female) and honorable mentions for Best Editing (Paul Usungu) and Best Sound Design (Leroy McClendon) in September 2019.
“Door to Purgatory represents the ‘in-between’ place where lies the struggle between life and death. Hell, and heaven could be present in life or an afterlife as the ultimate enlightenment or punishment. The characters become tangled elements of the moment, further weaving a story of faith, superstition, and magical existence”, states Alexandra Balda.
Director Alexandra Balda was also awarded by Independent Shorts Awards Bronze Best Horror Shor for her film “Vengeful Love” in October 2019, and previously Silver Best Women Short and Bronze Best Sound Design (Ron Potter), in January 2019, for “Obscured Reflection“, also streaming at ISA TV channel.
