The Christmas Tree (1998) [Short]

Australia (MIFF 1999 , Fiction)
Director: Sandra Graham

This four minute charmer is set in rural China in the 1960s. A young boy is intrigued when he comes across a card depicting a Christmas tree, and sets out to make a tree of his own. The no-nonsense narrative builds to a simple and satisfying payoff, as the boy searches for a solution to the one element missing from his tree.
