A love poem to 70's revenge films, Animus is the first film Produced and Directed by JTA, an action thriller which debuted at the Palm Springs Shortsfest in 2015. The film went on to win several awards, including, Best Directing at the Los Angles Underground Film Festival, scoring a distribution deal with ShortsTV. In 2022 JTA created the directors cut, the definitive version of the film with all the deleted materials included.


Rolondo, a man of God, has everything taken from him. Left questioning his faith and integrity, retaliation seems to be the only way to ease the Animus.
