Short Round: Wandering Soul, lost and forgotten

Directed by Josh Tanner, his latest short film Wandering Soul was inspired by a truly bizarre real-life story surrounding the Vietnam War. What immediately stood out to me about Tanner’s short was how stunning it looks—while a majority of the film takes place underground, it’s full of beautiful and terribly haunting visuals that bring its ghostly story to life. The story itself is quite shocking (especially after knowing what inspired it), and its ability to evolve from something so claustrophobic and intimate into a much larger, terrifying tale is what really makes the film work. I’ll just leave it at that. Enjoy.

During the Vietnam War, a Viet Cong soldier stationed in the claustrophobic Cu Chi tunnels is haunted by the ghost of a fallen comrade.
