"The Weight of Forgiveness" is a very original Italian short film.

The movie is full of realistic fights, actually more fought than acted -they are not choreographies, but real duels fought according to formalized combat styles-, by two of the major Italian experts of the Lightsaber’s Discipline, Eugenio Di Fraia and Andrea Iannini. They are also the directors, authors and special-effects editors of the movie. The Weight of forgiveness has been chosen by Cinema Arcadia di Melzo -one of the biggest and most technological advanced movie theatre all over the world- has one of the support events -from 16th to 20th December 2015- of the launch of latest SW’s episode “The Force Awakens

"I must tip my hat to the extremely talented and resourceful team over at Big Puddle Films for producing such a stellar short film titled Star Wars: The Force and the Fury." - The Mary Sue "In a sea of mediocre fan films, Satterlund’s latest project stands out from the rest for what it does right. It is filled with high-quality production design, excellent cinematography, great fight choreography and impressive music that hits the Star Wars tone." - Stand By 4 Story "I recommend the Force and The Fury. It is a wonderfully executed thriller and is a great addition to the fanfilm community. " - The Snark Side of The Force "The film is a strong addition to films that embrace representation, with Smith’s powerful and nuanced portrayal of a female Sith. Satterlund created a character that turns common Star Wars rules on its head by making the villain a female, something that has only been done previously on a small scale." - Black Girl Nerds
Star Wars version of Japanese anime, it gives Tie Fighter, a very successful short film directed by Paul Johnson. . Paul Johnson spent four years working on an animated version of Star Wars.

There is no dialogue, just the Zak Rahman guitar solos that punctuate perfectly the images. Everything is shown from the perspective of the Empire and its drivers which is shown for both the face and which are made of this humanized.
