Proboscis

Australia, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Rebecca McLean

Penny Gosonki and her wonder nose go to town. Proboscis is a comically endearing film of imaginative proportions. A somewhat bizarre story of death, family heirlooms and being different in a beautifully entertaining narrative. Sure to expand students' ideas on what makes a story.
