THE COMING

Australia, 1981 (MIFF 1981, Australian Independents)

Director: Craig Lahiff

Technology is breaking down. Is it just a temporary disturbance caused by unusual solar activity? A man struggles to come to terms with his fear and anxiety. A medium length narrative filled with cataclysmic foreboding and a nicely judged sense of something -who knows what? — about to happen.
