I recently had the pleasure of screening the short film Gage. Gage tells the true story of Phineas Gage who suffered a horrible brain injury due to a rod through his head. Taking place in the 19th century brain trauma knowledge was not as sophisticated as it is today and people did not know what to make of his side effects including multiple personality disorder. The movie also follows the doctor trying to help him.
Often short films are under developed and a full story is hardly ever told. That is not the case with Gage. The writing, acting, directing and cinematography are all top notch. It was quite the treat to watch and review this hidden gem.
