A young American woman discovers that her lack of attention in the world will cost her what she values most.


Chasm is a very strong example of how to make a bold statement within a short time-frame. Great use of sound design and interesting cinematography kept us hooked and helped elevate this above the usual 'it was all a dream' structure. We loved the bold use of still frames at the end, for added visual impact. We found it really powerful and thought-provoking.
