Chris Olson, UK Film Review

"Stoking the fire of racial tensions is an essential way to explore its complicated issues and damaging effect on communities. Short film The Visit, directed by Shane Andries, is a smart and compelling take on the current climate of volatility which surrounds particular stereotypes and manages to approach the topic with a unique perspective. 

Andries proves himself to be a very capable pair of hands when it comes to delivering a story that is based on ideas that are not only hugely divisive, but also often prone to offensive trivialisation. He does so, instead, in a way that is multilayered, compelling, and loaded with excellent performances."
