MIS CR1

North California natives Katrina and Daniel Mercadante, who make up The Mercadantes filmmaking duo, followed five young children for a day as they practice their respective religions in their most recent short film “Five”. The documentary gives an inside look into their daily spiritual day rituals and draws strong parallels as they all practice a different religion. Coming from South Africa, India, Japan, and the U.S., the children, Lonke, Sivanya, Daigo, Yaseen and Eli, respectively, all appear to be about the same age and following their elder’s lead in their own practicing. The beautifully depicted portraits of each child simply depicts the similarities between the five, even as they live across the world from one another and come from entirely different backgrounds.
