Blood Ballad

Australia, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Shorts with Features)

Director: Matthew Rich

Blood Ballad

Sombre and romantic, this moodily shot musical narrative is set in the 19th century. Tackling issues of love, loss and the varying ways people cope with guilt and grief, Blood Ballad is a decidedly ambitious project that succeeds in being both mysterious and compelling.
