One of the great things about modern technology is that anyone can turn their hand to film making – if they can work with a micro-budget. One of the God awful things about modern technology is also that anyone can turn their hand to film making – if they can work with a micro-budget. I have seen micro-budget films that contain slivers of sublime motion picture moments and others with ne’r a redeeming quality. I have also seen films that contain a bit of both.
Secrets of the Sisterhood comes across, to me at least, as a labour of love from director Kalila Katheriana Smith and there are some excellent moments within the film. There are also moments that are a tad clichéd and some poor dialogue and delivery thereof. But such is the joy of exploring indie films, wading through issues that, in high budget affairs, would be unforgivable – yet are completely understandable – to find gems. If gems are there then it is worth the effort.
