A young man faces the internal struggle of coming to terms with the accidental murder of his younger sister.

His short film "Sable Mire", made while still in high school, won SIFF's "WaveMaker" award in its "FutureWave" category in 2016.

"I am very grateful", he said, "that another one of my films has been selected to screen as a part of this great festival again -- this time as a part of ShortFest, the festival's general competition category for short films."

Bogui's comments on the making of the film:
"While I'd love to take all of the credit, this movie would be literally nothing without my enthusiastic cast and crew.

"Producer Annalise Pasztor worked day in and day out to find the absolute best location within a 30 mile radius, to get in contact with USC's Trojan Archery team, to schedule location scouts, auditions, to make sure everyone on set was well fed.

"Cinematographer and editor Ty Leet and I worked so well together that whenever I had an idea, he wasn't afraid to challenge and discuss it without sacrificing my vision, so that together, what we eventually came up with rose miles above what I could have come up with myself.

"The short film stars Mathew Van Oss, Natalie Moore, Jeannie Hudak and Scott Seiffert, aka the best darn actors I could've asked for. Not only are they all extremely talented, they enthusiastically drove an hour out into the middle of nowhere, threw themselves on stunt mats over and over again and rolled in dirt for your entertainment. 
"I'd like to thank Max Zade for teaching my team and me a new and very fun skill, for loaning us some of his personal equipment, for teaching me how to "fletch" an arrow, and for introducing us to the Trojan Archery coaches who let us use their range in Pasadena and taught Matt Van Oss how to shoot. 
"Of course this movie would not have been made if it weren't for the 30 or so of you who donated to my movie's Go Fund Me campaign! Also to thank are my faculty advisors and their student assistants who gave us invaluable advice throughout the entire process. It takes a lot of people to make a good movie, and it's as much theirs as it is mine."
