Crossbow

Australia, 2006 (MIFF 2007)

Director: David Michôd

Crossbow

Over the fence the neighbours are loud with their sex and their drugs and somewhere amongst it all, their boy sits silent. He's lost in the house, reaching out for warmth and love and as it all unravels one neighbour bears witness to everything.
