    For some reason SP has been sending emails inviting members to watch and comment on chosen films. So I did. This had nice naturalistic acting performances. Great ending! Some typical short film cliches, close ups of tea cups and tea swirling in the pot. terrible sentimental music and a poor sound mix. Weird green tinged colour grade. Not bad though, overall.

    Thanks Michael. I love this comment about it being implausible. I gave it to a script reader when I first wrote it and she said, "Get rid of the table leg, no one will believe that". Didn't have the heart to tell her it was all true.

    congratulations on creating a highly cinematic and poignant piece. the crazy thing is were it not for the fact that this is based on reality, it wouldn't feel plausible enough to pass muster on a narrative level.. superb work.

    I remember when this happened. I lived in the area, and was always shocked by it. Great to see that he hasn't been forgotten, and I hope the film can help to reveal the truth about what actually happened that day. Good luck!!

    Great piece, nicely made and acted. Not sure all the captions were necessary, but really effective when they worked.
