A Day and a Half

Australia, 1987 (MIFF 1988, Fiction)

Director: Michael Karris

Playing like the first third of a feature film, A Day and a Half carefully observes the inter-relations between a family through the eyes of an 11 year old girl.

Former AFTRS student Michael Karris shows exceptional feeling for nuance and telling but never showy direction, in this accomplished short-feature.
