A bright an innocent look at the heartbreaking illness of Alzheimer’s, through the eyes of a granddaughter. JOYA MIA is, astonishingly, written and directed by the young filmmaker Ella Warner.
It recounts a close-to-the-heart tale of young Julia, who witnesses the decline of her grandfather’s faculties as she grows into adulthood.
JOYA MIA is packed full of heart and emotion, and a special nod much be given to the directorial chops of this young filmmaker. The emotion of the familial relationships in the work is clear and easily accessible any audience. The truth and tragedy are easy to feel and the performances convey authenticity and honesty.
Ella Warner is a name we should watch, the dedication is takes to make a film is nothing to be overlooked. A talent on the rise.
