Sunset Country (2021) [Short]

Australia (MIFF 2021 )
Director: Petra Leslie

A middle-aged woman cares for her elderly father, whose will to live is on the wane.

Set in regional Victoria and shot in claustrophobic 4:3, Sunset Country is a contemplative, compassionate account of a very difficult stage of life that is rarely depicted on the big screen. With humble honesty and affecting precision, it offers a profound insight into ageing, grief, resignation and the pressure of being responsible for the life of another.
