The Visitor

Australia, 2007 (MIFF 2007, Shorts)

Director: Paul Andersen

The Visitor

A lonely woman who lives with her daughter in disconnected silence sews herself a new man from discarded rags. His presence exacerbates tension in the mother-daughter relationship. An unconventional drama of lonliness and redemption.
