The score came together beautifully for this one…

“Like It Was Yesterday was the stand out. The tale of a young man finding ways to communicate again with his father afflicted by dementia through old photos discovered that carried detailed notes and letters on their backs was a fresh and moving exploration of this increasing issue in society. The D’Souza family production team involved skilfully stayed clear of layering on unnecessary additional sentimentality through careful use of their climax scene.”
