Koimoi Recommends Feeling Through: An Oscar 2021 Nominated Film About a Homeless Helping Another Find Home

Today on Koimoi Recommends, I suggest you watch this short, also known as Omeleto, a film about a homeless helping another find his home.

Feeling Through is recommended by Koimoi: We are all born in this world in search of something. There’s a celebrity, there’s electricity, there’s cash, and there’s a ‘home’. There’s something to be said for having encounters with strangers that have a realisation that life has to offer. Remember when Nick and Brooke got married in Before We Go, or when Jesse and Celine got married in Before Sunrise? The Oscars 2021 have a short film, ‘Feeling Through,’ nominated in the Best Live Action Short category, a piece of art that is always stuck in my mind and will hit whenever I strike up a conversation with a stranger. Now on Koimoi Recommends, you should watch this short film, also known as Omeleto, about a homeless man who helps him find his home.

Feeling Throughout begins with a young man named Tereek (Steven Prescod) trying to persuade his girlfriend to let him crash at her place for the evening. He’s left homeless when she wakes up. Across the street, he notices Artie (Robert Tarango), who is standing calmly with a placard that reads, “Blind and deaf, please allow me to cross the street.” Tereek agrees to assist him and, for the first time in his life, has a homely experience.

I recommend that you get into Feeling Through by learning about all of the characters in the film. Director Doug Roland portrayed a deaf-blind man in real life in 2011 and has continued to support the production of this film since then. Robert Tarango was deaf from birth. Another life-threatening ailment took away his vision. His greatest ambition was to become a star, and he achieved this goal with Omeleto. Steven Prescod was incarcerated for prosecution when he was 16 years old. Mixing theatre with his own life gave him a new sense of direction.

In certain ways, Feeling Through has led to these three lifetimes per target. You can see why in this 18-minute short film, the desire, passion, art, and quest for belonging shine so brightly. When Doug, the film’s creator and producer, met the real Artie, it may have been the funniest night of his life. Tereek is a character who undergoes a transformation in his film. You encounter him as a bumbling teenager with no strong intent or anchor in his life. If he tries to help a blind man, he finds sparkle.

Both of them start talking, and he notices his own words. They give each other a presentation. And it’s at that point, when Tereek realises how happy Artie is with what he’s got, that Feeling Through begins to live up to its title. Roland shows how many people are dealing with problems bigger than people and more in an 18-minute documentary. He goes on about how kindness isn’t a virtue of the world in general, but rather a few of it. After the shopkeeper stares at Artie with an alien look, or the bus driver refers to him as the guy despite knowing his title, Roland with Tereek makes you realise how little sympathy we have for the less abled in the smallest of our actions.

The moment Tereek is helped by a different stranger who loves his assistance to Artie with a smile and a nod, is when magical ends. A young man who has recently found temporary shelter has developed a lifelong sense of being there for others.

In Feeling Through, there’s a lot to learn, and I’d like you to do some of it on your own. After seeing this one, I can guarantee you’ll have a big smile on your face and lend your palms the next time you meet a stranger in genuine desire. Kudos to Academy for making such an excellent decision!
