Rain

Australia, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Melanie Brunt

Rain explores the busy mind of a mother suffering from post-natal depression. As the rain pours down, Amy attempts to remember a list of things she must do as she hangs out the washing, a mantra running through her head. Meanwhile the baby cries endlessly. A powerful, albeit brief, examination of the more difficult aspects of new motherhood.
