CGiii Comment

Wow...just when you least expect it - along comes a short that showers you with unbridled talent.

Tender, touching, tragic...but, its beauty is its strength and the music...wow.

Cry like you have never cried before.

This is the pinnacle of short filmmaking. A wondrous achievement.

Thank you.

The(ir) Blurb...

Film description: This visually stunning short film set in the rural wheat belt of Western Australia, provides a candid insight into the life of Ronan, a 14 yr old boy who's been bullied his whole life at school. This accurate & controversial portrayal of life for someone who has fallen victim to bullying and the repercussions which exist, is told by director A.J. Carter in a unique, exposition intensive format with very little use of dialogue. Ronan's Escape presents arbitrary scenes rather than traditional storytelling which provokes audiences into discussion and interpretation of the scenes on a more personal level while reflecting on their own experiences.
