"Bold and ambitious, Another Yesterday explores multicultural-layered relational conflicts by taking us on a journey of unexpected twists and turns, all with a compelling visual sophistication. We look forward to more from writer/director/editor Steven Heil and his talented team."  – Ronn Kilby, Lead Judge, Los Angeles Film Awards.


“Another Yesterday is a multi-layered story that also presents an interesting and innovative mixture of different genres, from drama to coming-of-age to horror.  . . . As the plot reaches its climax, [the story] becomes a powerful metaphor on love and reconciliation.”  – Rome Prisma Film Awards reviewer 


“It’s rare that a film uses genre as a vehicle to tell an important, thoughtful and ultimately uplifting story. Your film manages to do all those things.”  – Matt Verboys, Co-Director of the Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival
