Requiem

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1991, Fiction)

Director: Mojgan Khadem

The writing and rehearsal of a publicly commissioned requiem are interrupted by the arrival of a strange woman with an urgent private commission. An accomplished short film, reminiscent of the art cinema of Paul Cox in its themes and style. (F.F)
