Unmourned

 

Short Film (trailer)

 

The 15-min film forms part of the development

of a feature project of the same name.

 

 

Cara is a damaged, semi-institutionalised child, seeking connection but unable to empathise with others. Alma is a Lithuanian teenager caring for her younger sister Maija. When the sisters visit the hospital where Cara is a long-term patient, Cara is quick to spot parentless outsiders like herself. But it’s Alma she’s after, and Maija is in the way...

 

Set in a hostile world where subjective sounds fill empty space and words retreat into the walls, Unmourned tracks the skewed perceptions and barely-felt hungers of a strange and dangerous girl.

 

Psychological thriller
