Famed cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto’s credentials range from Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film The Wolf of Wall Street to Frida. His visual eye ranks amongst the best in the business. Prieto makes his directorial debut with the disturbing, but important, short film Likeness. The film stars Elle Fanning as a teenager struggling with an eating disorder. Inspired by the experiences of his own daughter, Prieto puts us right in the shoes of those dealing with the disorder. He shows the image of ugliness that many feel on the inside. Though some scenes in the short are tough to watch, Likeness is one of those important shorts that needs to be seen.
