Ekaj shows flashes of brilliance and wisdom. It's reminiscent of an early film by the Safdie Brothers but manages to create its own place among the subgenre.
A compelling directorial debut from Cati Gonzalez, thanks to her confident direction, strong lead performances, striking cinematography, punchy themes and distinct characters.
Gonzales's ability to tell a story using fast-paced imagery is unlike anything I've seen before. She never wastes a single second...instead choosing a photographic approach to film that echoes the moment to moment lives of these homeless youth.
Gonzalez doesn't spare us the unforgiving and painful details of lives lived at the edge in her engrossing and confident debut feature. Badd Idea, playing the brutally honest yet caring Mecca, is moving, charismatic and hilarious.
Garners great direction by [Cati] Gonzalez who really captures the grit and flavor of New York that "Midnight Cowboy" did decades ago...
It presents a world that is rarely seen onscreen like this, recognisable to those who have lived in it. It tells a story that is cruel and urgent, passionate and real.
"Ekaj" is a poignant and powerful tale, a true-to-life picture that dares the audience to experience it as personally as possible, conveying difficult but important themes...
Ekaj has the ability to open up people's perspectives and allow connection to people we don't normally interact with. It is full of potential and I hope to see it get there. It holds pieces of a story that are too valuable to be lost and need to be told.
