Hollow Tree, The

Australia, 2007 (MIFF 2007)

Director: Ed Coy

After crashing his car, a man runs into the nearby woods carrying a mysterious sack. While its contents seem to weigh on him physically and emotionally, he is reluctant to let go - even when he feels he is being followed. But when he is discovered by one of the inhabitants of the swamplands, he has to make a choice… should he try to hide his burden or face his demons?

D/S Ed Coy P Lazaro Hernandez, Ben Commens, 8 mins
