Echo (voice) : Lorelei Southwell
“Director and writer Jo Southwell’s poignant and emotional fantasy Echo is one that will pull on your emotions and leave you wanting more. It’s a captivating story that draws you in and delivers a powerful message in such a way that’s both original and emotive.
Southwell takes on the topic of losing a child in a unique way by embracing the fantasy genre and opening up many new paths to go down creatively. This makes for an intriguing take on a story that other filmmakers would play safe with a typical hard hitting drama as seen time and time again. By capturing the fantasy element, it accurately infuses the film with a sense of innocence and wonder that makes for a more powerful connection with the lead character and her grief.” (APEX FILM FESTIVAL REVIEW)
